Malaysia’s SapuraKencana Energy (SKE) said it has made another “significant” gas discovery from its three-well drilling campaign at Block SK408 in the Sarawak area offshore Malaysia.
The first well, Jerun-1 is a discovery located approximately 5km north of the 2014 Bakong gas discovery.
Based on analysis of electric log, pressure and sample data Jerun-1 has an interpreted gross gas column of approximately 800m in the primary target reservoir and is a multi-TCF gas discovery, SKE said in a statement on Tuesday.
Jeremin-1, located approximately 15km west of the F9 gas field encountered a 104m gross gas column.
Putat-1, located approximately 20km north of the Cili Padi gas field is confirmed as a dry hole. All wells have been plugged and abandoned, the statement said.
These two wells, Jerun-1 and Jeremin-1 together with the earlier five discoveries within the SK408 block are close to existing infrastructure supplying gas to one of the world’s largest LNG facilities at Bintulu, Sarawak. The Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu comprises three LNG plants with a total of eight production trains and a combined capacity of 24 mtpa.
SKE is the exploration operator in Block SK408 with a (40%) working interest with partners Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. (30%) and Sarawak Shell Bhd. (30%) holding the remaining interest.
