Lundin Tastes Sweet Success Offshore Malaysia

Lundin Petroleum found gas in the Tarap-1 well in Block SB303, offshore Sabah, East Malaysia. Drilled by the Offshore Courageous jackup in a water depth of 70 meters, the Tarap-1 well was directionally drilled to a measured depth of 8,776 feet (2,675 meters).

The well encountered gas in each of the targeted five independently sealed stacked Miocene sands. Gross total vertical pay thickness for the sands encountered is approximately 492 feet (150 meters). The operator performed a comprehensive data acquisition program, including pressure measurements, sampling and a mini-flow test in selected zones.

Lundin will now analyze the gathered data in order to establish a range of resource estimates. The rig will now move to drill the Cempulut prospect – Lundin’s second well in its five-well drilling campaign, in Malaysia. Lundin holds a 75% interest in SB303 while its partner, Petronas Carigali holds the remaining interest.
