The exploration well is situated in Block SK405B production sharing contract (PSC), located in the shallow waters of Balingian Province, approximately 237km off the coast of Miri, Sarawak.

Drilled to a total depth of 2,538m, the Sirung-1 exploration well encountered significant oil and gas column, exceeding 100m within the Oligocene to Middle Miocene sandstone reservoirs.
