  • Production Volume:


  • The Champion field is a complex oil and gas field, situated 40 kilometres north-northwest of Bandar Seri Begawan, in water depths of 10 to 45 metres
  • Shell is working on a Waterflood Project to increase oil recovery

  • JDR: Ten custom designed umbilicals totalling 13 kilometres
  • McDermott: Transport and install offshore structures for Champion Waterflood B2/3


  • 1970 - Champion Oil Field discovered
  • 1983 - Construction of the centralised field facilities at Champion-7 was completed


  • The Champion field is highly compartmentalised, characterised by large areas of fault / dip closures, from the seabed downwards. Combined with the multilayered nature of the stratigraphic succession, striking sub-parallel to most of the faults, the numerous hydrocarbon traps are relatively small and generally stacked. Block widths range from 100- 450 metres.
  • Reservoirs are heterogeneous, consisting of mainly fine grained shallow marine to coastal/delta plain sands (i.e., beach/spit, channel, crevasse splay, barrier, distributary and mouth bar deposits). Porosities average between 25 and 30% at shallow levels and 10 to 14% at 3,000 m. Two-thirds of the reservoirs have permeabilities between 100-5,000 mDarcy (0.1-5 m2)
