Salamander Energy plc, an independent upstream oil and gas exploration and production company, announced Wednesday the spud of an exploration well in Block G4/50, Gulf of Thailand targeting the Ayutthaya prospect.

Ayutthaya is located in the Western Central sub-basin, some 4.3 miles (7 kilometers) northeast of the recent Surin oil discovery. The well will target oil in Miocene sandstones and is estimated to contain mean prospective recoverable resources of 30 million barrels of oil (MMbo). 

The well will be drilled to approximately 7,709.9 feet (2,350 meters) total vertical depth sub-sea using the Atwood Mako (400' ILC) jackup.
