Indonesia: Kerendan gas drilling, deep tests near

By OGJ editors

Salamander Bangkanai Energy, operator of the 4,534 sq km Bangkanai PSC on East Kalimantan, Indonesia, plans to drill four development wells in Kerendan gas field starting in late February 2012 followed by an exploratory deep test.

The rig, having been refitted for high pressure-high temperature operations, is expected to be mobilized from Batam Island, Riau, to Kalimantan by the end of February.

The development drilling will enable Kerendan gas field to be put on production. The rig will also explore the very large prospect at depth below Kerendan.

Interests in the Bangkanai PSC are Salamander 80%, Medco’s Bangkanai Petroleum Bhd 15%, and Sound Oil PLC unit Mitra Energia Bangkanai a 5% carried interest.
