– InterOil Corp. has spud the Antelope-2 appraisal well 2.2 miles south of the Antelope-1 discovery well in PPL 237 in Papua New Guinea.

Projected TD is 8,366 ft. Objectives are to penetrate the southern margin of the Antelope reef and determine the extent of the dolomite cap or higher porosity limestone reservoir predicted from seismic evaluation and to investigate the lower transition zone to further quantify and evaluate the nature of the fluid contacts in the southern extent of the field, in particular to provide more information on the vertical extent and commercial potential of an oil leg.
