Indonesia Sakti exploration well reaches total depth

KrisEnergy Ltd. (“KrisEnergy” or “the “Company”), an independent upstream oil and gas company, announces that it has completed drilling of the Mustika-1 exploration well in the Sakti production sharing contract (“PSC”) in the East Java Sea. Mustika-1 was drilled to a total measured depth of 2,768 feet (844 metres), or 2,667 feet total vertical depth subsea, and encountered gas in the Tuban and Kujung I formations. Initial indications from wireline logs are that the gases have a high carbon dioxide content and therefore are likely to be below the economic threshold for a commercial discovery. The well will be plugged and abandoned and a detailed analysis of the well data and gas samples will be undertaken to review the remaining prospects and leads in the Sakti PSC. Chris Gibson-Robinson, Director Exploration & Production, commented: “This is our final exploration well for 2015 with the first five being drilled in the Gulf of Thailand, all of which were successful. The first four wells resulted in the recently approved plan of development for the Rossukon field." KrisEnergy was awarded the Sakti PSC in February 2014. The block covers 4,974 sq. km in the East Java Sea over the western margin of the East Java Basin, Bawean Arch and the Muriah Trough. KrisEnergy is also the operator of the Bulu PSC, which is adjacent to the Sakti PSC and contains the Lengo gas discovery for which the Company received approval for its plan of development in December 2014. Front-end engineering design for the Lengo development was completed in the third quarter of 2015. Gas sales negotiations are ongoing and preparations are underway to tender the contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation.

KrisEnergy kicks off Sakti exploration well in East Java Sea

– KrisEnergy Ltd. (“KrisEnergy” or “the “Company”), an independent upstream oil and gas company, announces that the KS Java Star jack-up rig has commenced drilling of the Mustika-1 exploration well in the KrisEnergy-operated Sakti production sharing contract (“PSC”). Drilling is expected to take approximately 20 days. Mustika-1, which is targeting the Kujung I formation, is planned to reach a total measured depth at 3,100 feet (945 metres), or 3,000 feet total vertical depth subsea. The location of the well is based on the interpretation of the 1,202 km 2D and 401 sq. km 3D seismic data acquired by the Company in 2014. KrisEnergy is also the operator of the Bulu PSC, which is adjacent to the Sakti PSC and contains the Lengo gas discovery for which the Company received approval for its plan of development in December 2014. Chris Gibson-Robinson, Director Exploration & Production, said: “The decision to drill Mustika-1 at this time comes as we are finalising project details for the Lengo development. This prospect is 10 km west of Lengo and, if successful, we would look at producing Sakti gas through the Lengo facilities.” Front-end engineering design for the Lengo development was completed in the third quarter of 2015. Gas sales negotiations are ongoing and preparations are underway to tender the contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation. KrisEnergy was awarded as the operator a 95% working interest in the Sakti PSC in February 2014. The block covers 4,974 sq. km in the East Java Sea over the western margin of the East Java Basin, Bawean Arch and the Muriah Trough. Golden Heaven Jaya Ltd. holds the remaining 5% working interest.
