By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 23
-- A successful appraisal well near the Jangkrik gas discovery in the Kutei basin off East Kalimantan, Indonesia, has sharply increased the estimate of the field’s recoverable resource.

Eni SPA said the Jankrik-2 appraisal well, drilled to 2,449 m in 425 m of water on the Muara Bakau PSC 70 km off the coast, cut more than 80 m of net pay in excellent quality reservoir sands of Pliocene age.

During the Jangkrik-2 production test, the well produced high quality gas at a tubing-constrained rate of 17.5 MMscfd.

Eni, through its Indonesian subsidiary, is the operator of Muara Bakau PSC with a 55% interest. GDF Suez holds 45% interest.

The joint venture plan is to proceed quickly with assessment of the technical and commercial viability of a fast-track development. Jangkrik gas will be will be routed to the Bontang LNG plant.

Eni, among its other projects in Indonesia, was awarded an interest in Sanga Sanga CBM, a new coalbed methane PSC to be operated 50-50 with BP PLC as Vico CBM Ltd., which would supply CBM for shipment as LNG (OGJ Online, Dec. 2, 2009).
