BEIJING (Dow Jones)–Brunei Shell Petroleum’s Bugan field is on track to deliver its first oil in September after completing the construction of a high-tech platform a year ahead of schedule, the Brunei Times newspaper reported Tuesday, citing a company statement

The Bugan field, approximately 21 kilometers off the coast of Brunei, was discovered in the 1990s, and Brunei Shell has said it holds “potentially significant oil and especially gas reserves”.

The company didn’t mention output estimates in the statement released to the media yesterday.

Brunei’s crude oil output averaged 175,000 barrels a day, according to BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy.

Brunei Shell Petroleum, the only oil and natural gas producer in the sultanate, is an equal joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSB.LN) and the state of Brunei.
