"The oil discovery at Endau enhances our Sarawak position by confirming additional oil potential in Block SK 311 in shallow water Malaysia," said Claiborne P. Deming, Murphy Oil Corporation's President and Chief Executive Officer. "The Endau field, which lies nine kilometers southwest of the earlier announced Rompin oil discovery, will be appraised later this year. We are currently evaluating development options for this area," he further added.
Murphy, as operator, has an 85% working interest in Block SK 311. PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd., a wholly owned exploration and production arm of PETRONAS, holds the remaining 15%.
In deepwater Sabah, Murphy encountered oil in multiple sands at the Kerisi #1 well (Murphy 100%) that lies in the Kikeh Trend. Deming commented, "While the oil in Kerisi is not of a stand-alone size, we are evaluating this as a potential satellite development tied to the Kikeh field less than eight kilometers to the south."
