PTTEP appraising Malaysian discovery, eyes cluster development
Dateline 2023-02-07, Upstream:
Thailand’s national upstream company PTTEP has spudded the latest in a string of keenly watched exploration and appraisal wells offshore Malaysia where it is hoping to continue its success of late with the drill bit, firming up more hydrocarbons for a proposed cluster development.
Borr Drilling’s rig Gunnlod is drilling the Sirung-2 appraisal well located on Block SK 405B offshore Sarawak, East Malaysia.
The successful Sirung-1 wildcat that was spudded in January 2021 discovered both oil and gas.
