France-based integrated international oil and gas company Total expects to commission a new phase of the offshore Maharaja Lela Jamalulalam (MLJ) gas and condensates field inBruneiin 2015. The plant is likely to boost gas deliveries to the Brunei LNG export project operated by Total (37.5 per cent stake), Shell (35 per cent), and PetroleumBrunei(27.5 per cent). The project, located in Block B of the field, has been producing gas since 1999. Starting from 2007, the partners have implemented an exploration and development programme in the MLJ South field and have managed to find additional reserves to extend gas deliveries to the LNG plant beyond 2013. Besides the installation of an additional wellhead platform, the aforementioned expansion of the project entails debottlenecking at the onshore gas processing plant to increase its capacity from 4.7 million cubic metre per day to 5.7 mcm per day.
