About 540,000 cubic metres of gas and 200 tonnes of condensate a day are generated from the well. Vietsovpetro has applied technical solutions to bring gas and condensate to the mainland via Bach Ho oil as soon as possible. BK-TNG platform in the Thien Ung field is part of Lot 04-3, which was assigned to the Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group (PVN) and Russia’s AO Zarubezhneft Oil and Gas Company. Vietsovpetro was assigned as the manager. The Thien Ung field was discovered by Vietsovpetro in 2009.
