4 kboepd (2022 production)
Our Chim Sao and Dua fields in Vietnam averaged 4 kboepd in 2022. This reflected natural decline from the existing well stock partially offset by a full year's contribution from the fields and ongoing well intervention activity. Production was also impacted by the delayed arrival of the rig to drill two infill wells and to side-track an existing production well which resulted in the wells coming on-stream in 2023 rather than in the second half of 2022 as originally premised.

The Chim Sáo oil field was discovered in 2006 and first oil was achieved in October 2011. Oil production is exported via a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, and gas is exported by pipeline to Vung Tau near Ho Chi Minh City.
The Dua oil and gas field was subsequently developed as a subsea tie-back to Chim Sáo with first production achieved in July 2014.
