PTTEP Logs More Pay in Block 44 in Oman
PTTEP reports that the Shams-3 exploration well, located in the northern part of the Block 44 in Oman, has found gas. The well was drilled to total depth of 3,400 meters, and resulted in natural gas and condensate discoveries in a reservoir formation with a total thickness of approximately 14 meters. The testing showed a natural gas flow rate of approximately 17 million standard cubic feet per day, and condensate of approximately 2,170 barrels per day.
The Munhamir-1 exploration well in the southern part of the Block 44 was drilled to total depth of 2,845 meters, and resulted in a crude oil discovery in a reservoir formation with a total thickness of approximately 17 meters. The testing showed a crude oil flow rate of approximately 2,367 barrels per day, and natural gas of approximately 0.9 million standard cubic feet per day.
With the result of Shams-3 exploration drilling, natural gas and condensate discoveries will add value to the Shams Gas project of PTTEP. In addition, the Company plans to study and evaluate the Munhamir-1 exploration well in greater detail in order to confirm the petroleum reserves for further development and production.
