Woodside makes 2nd gas discovery offshore Myanmar

Australian LNG operator Woodside said Friday it has made a second natural gas discovery offshore Myanmar.

According to a statement by Woodside, the Thalin-1A exploration well in Block AD-7 in the Rakhine Basin has intersected a gross gas column of approximately 64m. Approximately 62m of net gas pay was interpreted within the primary target interval.

The gas discovery at Thalin-1A follows an earlier gas discovery by Woodside at the Shwe Yee Htun-1 well in Block A-6.

Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the two discoveries at opposite ends of the Rakhine Basin was a “great result for the company“.

These results are very encouraging for future exploration and appraisal activity, given the significant footprint we have in Myanmar,” he said.

Thalin-1A is located in the northern part of the Rakhine Basin approximately 60km west of the Daewooo-operated producing Shwe Field, which has onshore gas plant and pipeline gas export facilities.

With a 40% interest in AD-7, Woodside Energy (Myanmar) Pte Ltd, is the operator with respect to deepwater drilling. Daewoo International Corporation, with a 60% interest, is operator for all other
operations.
