Drilling operations on Bumi South-1 well commenced on February 25, 2005. The exploration well, located in a water depth of 55 meters was drilled to a total depth of 1650 meters and encountered multiple gas zones. Further technical evaluation is required to determine the reserves.
Bumi South-1 is the fourth discovery in Block PM301, following the recent exploration successes of Bunga Kamelia, Bunga Zetung and Bunga Anggerik. The latest discovery is located about 25 kilometers northwest of the Bunga Anggerik gas field discovered in November 2004.
CS Mutiara Petroleum is currently embarking on technical studies to assess the development options of this cluster of gas discoveries and also has plans to continue with exploration and appraisal activities in the same block.
CS Mutiara Petroleum was formed in July 2001 and operates Blocks PM301 and PM302, both located off the northeast coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
