Petronas reports gas find in Malaysia, oil appraisal in Indonesia

Malaysia’s Petronas reported a natural gas discovery in Malaysia and an oil strike in an appraisal well in Indonesia.

In Malaysia, gas was discovered in the Sintok-1 well on offshore Block SK320, about 240 km northwest of Bintulu, Sarawak.

Block operator Mubadala Petroleum drilled to 2,775 m. Well data indicates a 292-m gas column. It’s the third gas discovery on the block since Petronas awarded it in February 2010.

In Indonesia, a Petronas subsidiary drilled the Bukit Tua South-2 appraisal well to assess the Bukit Tua South-1 oil discovery in 2012. The appraisal well penetrated the CD and Kujung carbonate reservoirs and reached 2,176 m. A drillstem test for the CD interval recorded a flow rate of 1,656 b/d through a 2-in. choke. Another DST will be carried out for the shallower Kujung reservoir.

Production from the Bukit Tua oil field is expected to begin by late 2014.
