Wortel-1 Exploration Well Encounters Gas

The Wortel near-field exploration well being drilled 7km west of the Oyong oil and gas field in the Sampang PSC, offshore Indonesia has reached a total depth of 1464 meters and wire line logging is ongoing. Initial interpretation indicates a gross gas column of 141 meters in good quality reservoir, above a gas water contact at 1383 meters.

The forward plan is to run a 7 inch liner and flow test the well.

The discovery of gas at Wortel is encouraging given that Wortel is only 7 km west of the Oyong oil and gas field, where a platform has been installed and a gas pipeline is planned from the field to Grati to supply gas under an existing gas contract.

Participants in the Sampang PSC are Santos as operator with 40.5%; Singapore Petroleum with 36%; Cue Sampang with 13.5%; and PT Petrogas Oyong Jatim with 10%.
