The Lam Son Joint Operating Company (Lam Son JOC), is bringing ashore 8,000 barrels of crude oil a day from its Thang Long oilfield located in Block 01-02/97 off the southern continental shelf of Vietnam.

According to the PetroVietnam Exploration and Production Corporation (PVEP) – Lam Son JOC’s parent company, the crude is being pumped from TL-P8, TL-1P, 4P, 3P, 7P and 5P wells, which were officially put into operation on June 6.

Lam Son JOC also plans to extract oil the Dong Do field, which is also located in Block 01-02/97 later this month.

The Thang Long and Dong Do oilfields were discovered in the Cuu Long sediment basin, about 160 kilometres east off the southern Vung Tau sea.

Local services have been used for the production of the fields, which will contribute to ensuring the national energy security and increasing PVEP’s oil and gas production output.-VNA
