Mancharee-1 well doesn’t find significant pay offshore Thailand

KrisEnergy Ltd., Singapore, reported it has concluded drilling an exploration well on Block G10/48 in the Gulf of Thailand, where the company is developing Wassana oil field.

The Mancharee-1 well, which was drilled in 170 ft of water, reached a total 12,205 ft measured depth (10,460 ft true vertical depth subsea). The well encountered gas shows at several levels, KrisEnergy said, but the company couldn’t use it to identify any significant pay zones.

Mancharee-1, the final commitment well in the third exploration phase of the license, was drilled using Seadrill Far East Ltd.’s West Cressida jack up rig.

KrisEnergy holds 100% working interest in Block G10/48, which covers 4,696 sq km over the southern section of the Pattani basin in 60 m of water. As well as the Wassana oil development, the block also contains the Niramai and Mayura oil discoveries.
