Third Rig Tendered for Bengara-II Drilling Program



Continental Energy reports that its 18% owned Indonesian subsidiary Continental-GeoPetro has called for tenders for a third drilling rig to provide turn-key, integrated drilling services to drill wells on the Bengara-II PSC, onshore East Kalimantan, Indonesia.

CGB2 expects to award the drilling contract around the end of August.

The third rig will allow for intensification of the 2007 drilling program and will facilitate rapid evaluation of the large, fault bounded structure currently being tested by the Seberaba-1 well.
