Australia's gas and ancillary power generation development company NuEnergy Gas Limited provided Thursday an update on the drilling progress of Tanjung Enim Production Sharing Contract (PSC) tenement in South Sumatra, Indonesia and Rengat PSC tenement in Central Sumatra, Indonesia.
Tanjung Enim PSC
TE-007C is located about 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) from TE-009C and approximately 118 miles (190 kilometers) west of Palembang, Indonesia. A truck mounted rig was used to drill to a depth of 984 feet (300 meters) targeting known coal seams. TE-009C is the third core well drilled in the Tanjung Enim PSC.
Gas saturation analysis was tested across all of the seams from the 3 core wells and the results, determined by the official Indonesian certifier PT Sucofindo, demonstrated gas content ranging between 80 and 110 standard cubic feet per ton (Scf/ton).
NuEnergy’s CEO Dr. Ian Wang commented “These encouraging results of the 3 core wells (TE-007C, TE-008C, TE-009C) drilled to-date, when compared to other CBM projects prove commercial viability and further confidence on our objective to fast-track and book early gas reserves.”
Tanjung Enim PSC covers 194.3 square miles (312.7 square kilometers) of South Sumatra Basin and is situated in the most prolific coal bed methane (CBM) basin in Indonesia with existing gas pipelines infrastructures nearby. Dart Energy (Indonesia) Holding Pte Ltd. (DEIH) group has a 45 percent working interest in the PSC and is the operator of the PSC. NuEnergy has entered into a Share Purchase Agreement with Dart Energy International Limited in May 2015 for the acquisition of the entire equity interest in DEIH. The proposed acquisition is currently pending the approval of the relevant authorities in Indonesia.
NuEnergy will continue to log and conduct permeability test on coal formations to identify and map coal continuity across the basin and to understand the reservoir characteristics for further development.
Rengat PSC covers 925 square miles (2,395 square kilometers) of Central Sumatra Basin and lies in between prolific oil and gas concessions (located in the Central Sumatra Basin in the vicinity of a major gas pipeline from Jakarta to the Chevron Duri Steam Flood project and related infrastructure). NuEnergy has a 100 percent working interest in Rengat PSC and is the operator of the PSC.
