Salamander Spuds New North Kendang Well

Junior explorer Salamander Energy reported Wednesday that it has spud its North Kendang-2 exploration well in the South East Sangatta production sharing contract, offshore Indonesia.

The NK-2 well, a re-drill of the North Kendang-1 well, will be drilled to a depth of approximately 9,440 feet in order to evaluate the Upper Miocene section. The Ocean General (DW semisub) rig, which has now been fitted with managed-pressure drilling equipment to enable it to manage the anticipated pressure regime, will be used to drilled the well.

NK-1 was previously drilled to 8,320 feet. It encountered a high-pressure wet gas kick in the Upper Miocene, which led to it being plugged and abandoned in April 2013.
