The current plan is to suspend the well and, following more detailed analysis, plan to re-enter the well with a work over rig to further test the upper Asmari reservoir with a view to determine if the oil accumulation is of commercial interest. Further information will be made available as soon as all the acquired data has been interpreted in detail.
Meanwhile the drilling unit is being demobilised and transported to the Shakestan (S-1) drilling location. The S-1 well is expected to spud in the second half of July.
The Munir Block is operated by Edison International (40% working interest) with partners Petronas Carigali Overseas Sdn Bhd (30%) and Lundin Petroleum (30%).
