Chinese deepwater gas field registers record gas and oil production



China's first independently developed and constructed ultra-deepwater gas field, Shenhai Yihao, or Deep Sea No.1, has recorded an accumulated production of over 8 billion cubic meters of natural gas so far, with its condensate oil production exceeding 800,000 cubic meters.


The deepest of its kind in China, the field began operations on June 25, 2021.


According to operator China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), construction of the Deep Sea No.1 Phase II project is underway, aiming to upgrade the gas field. Upon completion, it will control 23 deepwater gas wells and two sets of subsea production systems.


Located 150 kilometers from the city of Sanya, in the island province of Hainan, southern China, Deep Sea No.1 is capable of operating at a maximum depth of over 1,500 meters at sea.
