LONDON (AFX) – Royal Dutch Shell PLC said it expects the Pohokura gas field in New Zealand to achieve peak production of around 40,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Gas from the three completed onshore wells has been fed to the the production station at Motonui, near New Plymouth since earlier this month.

Commissioning of the production station will continue over the coming weeks in preparation for commercial gas sales. Six offshore wells are expected to come on stream over the coming year, it added.

The gas will be fed into the North Island gas network and the condensate will be piped to storage tanks at Omata near New Plymouth for shipping to refineries.

Shell is the operator of the project with a 48 pct stake. OMV AG and Todd Pohokura Ltd each own a 26 pct interest.
