The well will be ramped up in a controlled manner over the next few weeks to provide test data to satisfy regulatory obligations as well as providing further insights into reservoir behaviour. As a result, the well is currently heavily choked and flowing at approximately 0.5 TJ/d. As the well is ramped up, it is expected to bring total field production significantly closer to the plant capacity of 15 TJ/d.
Early production data from PV13, along with data from the underperforming existing wells, will help inform an updated forecast of field production potential.
