The Pertamina-Petrochina Joint Operating Body plans to increase production in the Sukowati oil field in Bojonegoro, East Java, from 42,000 barrels a day to 56,000 barrels a day in 2011.

To achieve the target, five more new wells would be added. Total production from Sukowati wells in Field A and B totalling 14 reach 40,000 barrels a day. The production at Mudi field in Rahayu village, Soko sub-district, Tuban, with 25 wells meanwhile is around 2,500 barrels a day.

To increase the production at Sukowati field the well site in Field A would be expanded three hectares more. Facilities would also be set up to support production increase such as a 20-kilometer long undersea pipe line to the location of oil collection center in Palang, Tuban.
