Valeura Energy, the upstream oil and gas company with assets offshore Gulf of Thailand and the Thrace Basin of Turkey, has entered into a definitive agreement with PT Samudra Alam Transport, a subsidiary of PT Buana Lintas Lautan Tbk, to charter a crude oil tanker to store oil produced from the Wassana oil field, offshore Gulf of Thailand, as previously announced on November 11, 2022.  The vessel is expected to be renamed MT Jaka Tarub (previously MT Vula).

The MT Jaka Tarub is a Panamax sized oil tanker, with storage capacity of 460,000 bbls.  Following cleaning and modification work scheduled for December 2022, the vessel will be made compatible with the Wassana field's mooring and crude oil offloading systems. 

Pending customs clearance, the MT Jaka Tarub is expected to arrive at the field in early January 2023.  Valeura intends to resume production operations as soon as practicable thereafter, targeting initial oil production rates of up to 3,000 bbls/d, net to the 89% working interest held by its special purpose vehicle subsidiary, Valeura Energy Asia Pte. Ltd.
