Wortel-2 to be Plugged and Abandoned
Santos says that the Wortel-2 appraisal well in the Sampang PSC, offshore East Java, Indonesia, has been drilled to a total depth of 1,421 meters and will now be plugged and abandoned having failed to encounter significant hydrocarbons in the 'C' fault block.
The Sedco 601 will now move to the Madura Offshore PSC to drill the Semangka-1 exploration well.
Following the drilling of Semangka-1, it is expected the rig will return to the Sampang PSC to drill the appraisal well Wortel-3, approximately 350m east of the Wortel-1 discovery well which penetrated a 140 meter gas column in good quality reservoir. This well will test the 'B' fault block section, to appraise the extent and quality of the gas reservoir in the Wortel structure.
The participants in the Sampang PSC are Santos (Sampang) Pty Ltd as operator with 40.5%; Singapore Petroleum Sampang Ltd with 36.0%; Cue Sampang Pty Ltd with 13.5% and
PT Petrogas Oyong Jatim with 10.0%
