Coastal Energy Co. has drilled a horizontal well at Bua Ban North field in the Gulf of Thailand and is preparing it to go on production.

Bua Ban North A-10, the first horizontal development well at Bua Ban North, was drilled into the Miocene reservoir on the western side of the field and encountered 1,185 ft of high-quality net pay. The lateral section is at 3,695 ft true vertical depth, 130 ft above the known water level.
