Lundin makes oil find with Janglau well offshore Malaysia

Lundin Petroleum AB said it discovered oil with its Janglau-1 well, which was drilled to 3,820 m total depth on Block PM308A offshore Peninsular Malaysia.

Lundin said the well “had the objectives of Oligocene intrarift sands and the underlying fractured pre-Tertiary section.”

It said during drilling below 3,153 m, oil was found in “multiple pay sand units in an intrarift sand/shale section that extended over a gross interval of approximately 300 m.” Oil samples were recovered at surface during drilling.

The well was successfully logged and petrophysical analysis indicates 24 m of net oil pay. Pressure testing and fluid sampling were completed and oil samples recovered for laboratory analysis. A mini-DST test was successfully completed.

Following completion of the well further work will be undertaken on the data recovered to fully evaluate the discovery and its potential.

Following completion of Janglau-1 the Offshore Courageous jack up rig will move to the Bertam-2 appraisal well location in the adjacent PM307 PSC area.

The PM308A production sharing contract is operated by Lundin Malaysia BV with a 35% stake; JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Peninsular Malaysia) Ltd. holds 40% and Petrona Carigali holds 25%.
