NZOG Provides Drilling Update at Parit Minyak-3 Well in Sumatra

New Zealand Oil & Gas Ltd reported Monday that as at Sunday, Sept. 8, seven inch casing had been run and cemented at the Parit Minyak-3 (PM-3) well, located in the Kisaran Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in onshore Sumatra, Indonesia.

Current operations is casing off the open hole section with 7 inch casing, before drilling to 9,000 feet (2,744 meters) using a 5.875 inch bit.
