LOS ANGELES, Dec. 6 -- Malaysia's Petronas said development is possible of the Kanowit-1 natural gas discovery on Block SK306 off Sarawak.
Japan Drilling Co. Ltd.'s Naga-1 semisubmersible drilled the well to 2,029 m subsea about 180 km northwest of Bintulu in 80 m of water.
Kanowit-1 encountered "a very significant gas accumulation in a Miocene limestone reservoir," Petronas reported.
On two production tests, the well flowed at a total rate of 72 MMscfd of gas and 3,400 b/d of condensate, with 5-10% carbon dioxide.
Nearby gas fields are Kumang, F28, and F6.
