Dateline 2015-11-25, AOG:
Lundin Petroleum’s Malaysian arm has plugged and abandoned Selada-1 exploration well in block PM308A, offshore Malaysia, as it was a dry hole.
The well, which was targeting hydrocarbons in the Miocene aged sands approximately 14km to the south of the Bertam field operated by Lundin Malaysia, was drilled with the West Prospero jackup rig.
Lundin Malaysia holds 75% working interest in PM308A, while block partner PETRONAS Carigali has 25% stake.
Similarly, in the Bertam field, late October, the duo plugged and abandoned the Mengkuang-1 exploration well in license PM307, because only a small amount of gas was found. After drilling to a depth of 1259m below sea level, using the West Prospero, the well encountered 9m of gas pay.
