Salamander Drills Duster Offshore Vietnam
Salamander Energy plugged and abandoned the Tom Su Lua-1X (DBSCL01-TSL-1X) exploration well, the first to be drilled in the basin. The DBSCL01-TSL-1X well reached a total vertical depth of 4,528 feet (1,380 meters), and following the completion of wire line logging operations, the well was abandoned as a dry hole. The well encountered both potential seals and high quality reservoir sandstones, which were water-wet in the Tertiary clastic section. The PV Drilling I jackup will now move about 16 miles (25 kilometers) south to drill the 31-Tom Hum Xanh-1X exploration well in Block 31. The Tom Su Lua prospect is located on Block DBSCL-01 in the Vinh Chau Graben system, offshore southern Vietnam. Salamander Energy operates the block, holding a 75% interest.SubseaIQ provides focused, in-depth coverage of offshore field development activities around the world, with daily updates on hundreds of offshore fields and facilities.
