HOUSTON, Feb. 21
– Ramba Energy Ltd., Singapore, will drill two development wells on the Jatirarangon TAC in the second half of 2011 using a one-time $2.18 million advance payment from the gas purchaser, PT Perusahaan Gas Negara.

The JRR-6 and JRR-7 wells are expected to add 4 MMscfd to the block’s present output of 3.4 MMscfd of gas and 90 b/d of oil.
