Mar 12, 1997 01:00 AM

The Tazhong No. 4 Oilfield built in Northwest China's Tarim Basin went operational early this month. According to local sources, the oilfield produces 5,000 tons of crude a day, which is sent to Korla City through a 500 km pipeline. The oilfield, located in the Taklimakan Desert, was discovered in 1992 and proved to have 35.7 sq km of oil-bearing strata, with a verified oil reserve of 93 mmt. Oil workers started trial exploration in 1994 at the oilfield, designed to have an annual production capacity of 2 mmt of crude oil. Over the past two years, they have drilled 40 wells at the oilfield. Tazhong No. 4 Oilfield is the fifth oilfield ever built in Tarim Basin which now has a combined annual production capacity of 4.4 mmt of crude oil. The other four oilfields in the basin are Lunnan, Donghetang, Sangtamu and Jiefangqudong oilfields.
