ConocoPhillips is set to drill up to three wells off the Malaysian state of Sarawak after hiring a jack-up drilling rig from Malaysia’s Velesto Energy.

Velesto said ConocoPhillips has hired its Naga (dragon) 7 jack-up rig under a contract worth $8 million. Drilling is planned to start before end of June.

ConocoPhillips is considering drilling up to three wells offshore Sarawak this year – the Salam-3 appraisal and the Gagau-1 wildcat on Block WL4-00, and the Mersing-1 exploration well on Block SK 304.
