BEIJING, March 18 (Xinhua) -- The China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) Ltd., the listed unit of the largest producer of offshore crude oil and natural gas in China, has discovered a large oilfield, Kenli 6-1, in the Bohai Sea.

The Kenli 6-1 structure is located in the Laibei lower uplift in the southern Bohai basin with an average water depth of about 19.2 meters.

The discovery well KL6-1-3 was drilled and completed at a depth of 1,596 meters and encountered oil pay zones with a total thickness of about 20 meters, according to the CNOOC Limited.

The well was tested to produce around 1,178 barrels of oil per day.

The successful exploration of Kenli 6-1 demonstrated the company's breakthrough in the exploration area of Laibei lower uplift, and further proved the huge exploration potential of the Neogene lithologic reservoir in Laizhou Bay, the company said. Enditem
