Papua New Guinea: Oil Search nearly down at Gulf of Papua well

Oil Search (PNG) Ltd. has drilled its Kidukidu-1 exploratory well in the Gulf of Papua offshore Papua New Guinea to a total depth of 2,697 m and was preparing to pull out of the hole to run logs.

The well, 18 km southwest of the 1980s Pasca gas discoveries, encountered minor gas shows in two sand intervals, of 51 m and 20 m gross thickness, respectively, that are to be evaluated with the logging program.

The company's 100% owned Kidukidu prospect is in 98 m of water 268 km west-northwest of Port Moresby. The primary objective is a submarine, basin-slope fan sandstone of Pleistocene age. Kidukidu 1 is the third and final well to be drilled in the current Oil Search Gulf of Papua campaign.
