TNK Gas Flows in Vietnam

HANOI — TNK Vietnam, a subsidiary of Russia's third-largest oil producer, TNK-BP, said Tuesday that it had started gas production at the Lan Do field, off Vietnam's coast.

Production began Sunday at the field, 28 kilometers east of Lan Tay Platform in Block 06.1, the company said in a statement.

The production at Lan Do field will help the company sell 2 billion cubic meters of gas annually. TNK-BP, half-owned by BP, acquired a 35 percent stake from BP and became the operator of Block 06.1 in 2011.
