Licence G6/48 (Rossukon field)

Re-invigorating a stalled development

Licence G6/48 contains the undeveloped Rossukon oil field, which is an accumulation of medium sweet crude oil contained within fluvial detaic reservoirs of Miocene age.  The field contains best estimate (2C) unrisked contingent resources of 4.7 MMbbls of oil, classified as “development pending,” in addition to certain additional 2C unrisked contingent resources, classified as “development unclarified.”*


The Thai regulator has approved development of the Rossukon field, and the equity partners are in discussion relating to the development concept and timing of capital spending and resultant production.  Valeura regards block G6/48 as source of potential upside value to its Gulf of Thailand portfolio. 

Valeura’s acquisition of a 43% operated interest was completed on June 15, 2022.  The remaining 57% interest is held by Northern Gulf Petroleum.
