Premier Abandons Gajah Sumatera-1 Well

The Gajah Sumatera-1 exploration well in Natuna Sea Block A has been drilled to a total depth of 2,387 meters. While the well encountered some gas shows while drilling, wireline logs indicate that no significant hydrocarbons were encountered and the well has been plugged and abandoned.

Following completion of operations on the Gajah Sumatera-1 well, the West Larissa (Seadrill-5) has moved to the Anoa field where it will conduct a workover on an existing well, before drilling a development well to exploit the oil discovered last year in Anoa's Central Lobe.

Simon Lockett, Premier's Chief Executive, commented:

'The West Larissa (Seadrill-5) now moves on to development activity to support existing gas sales contracts into Singapore and to exploit the oil discovered in 2006 in the Central Lobe of Anoa'
