UMW secures Myanmar contract for 'UMW Naga 5'

UMW OIL & GAS CORPORATION BERHAD (UMW- OG) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary UMW Offshore Drilling Sdn Bhd (UOD) has been awarded a contract with PTTEP International Limited (PTTEPI) in relation to the Provision of Drilling Rig Services for Block M-3 Appraisal Drilling Campaign 2014. Block M-3 is located at offshore Myanmar. The contract will be performed using ‘UMW NAGA 5’, its latest jack-up drilling rig, which is currently under a drilling contract in the Philippines with NIDO Petroleum Pty Ltd. (NIDO). The contract is for five firm wells, (approximately 250 days excluding mobilisation and demobilisation), and may be extended for one optional well thereafter and represents a contract value of approximately USD51.3 million for the firm wells. The rig is expected to be mobilized to Myanmar in August.

Nido set to plug Baragatan-1A well

Nido Petroleum Limited (Nido) on behalf of SC 63 Joint Venture partners PNOC-EC and Dragon Oil (Philippines SC 63) Limited wishes to advise that the Baragatan-1A well on the 6th July 2014 had reached a depth of 2,681 meters Measured Depth (2,328 meters TVD sub-sea) having drilled through the primary Pagasa Formation reservoir objective. The primary Pagasa Formation reservoir objective was encountered between 2,534 – 2,654 meters Measured Depth (2,209 – 2,305 meters TVD sub-sea) comprising primarily of limestones of poor to good reservoir quality with minor sandstones and siltstones. Preliminary Logging Whilst Drilling (LWD) log data recorded through this interval indicates the reservoir units to contain low gas saturations (C1 to C5) which did not warrant further evaluation or testing. With respect to the two zones of potential interest encountered in the shallower Pagasa Formation, preliminary evaluation of available LWD data indicates the thin sandstones encountered within the gross interval 1,977 - 2,004 meters Measured Depth (1,785 - 1,805 meters TVD sub-sea) are potentially gas-bearing and the limestone encountered over the gross interval 2,207 – 2,236 meters Measured Depth (1,960 – 1,982 meters TVD sub-sea) contains low gas saturations. Both these intervals did not warrant further evaluation or testing. The forward operation is to Plug and Abandon the Baragatan-1A well.

Nido releases Baragatan-1A well update

Nido Petroleum Limited (Nido) on behalf of SC 63 Joint Venture partners PNOC-EC and Dragon Oil (Philippines SC 63) Limited wishes to advise that the Baragatan-1A well as at 2nd July 2014 was currently at 2,457 meters measured depth (2,152.9 meters TVD sub-sea). Since the previous well update released on the 23rd June 2014, continuing formation pressure and unstable well bore conditions in the e 8 ½” hole section required the setting of the 7” liner at 2,356 meters Measured Depth (2,109 meters TVD sub-sea). Following the successful setting of the 7” liner, stable hole conditions were established although drilling performance has been reduced in the 6” hole section. Current operation was changing the drill-bit before drilling ahead in 6” hole towards the primary reservoir objective.

Nido releases Baragatan-1A well update

Nido Petroleum Limited(Nido) on behalf of SC 63 Joint Venture partners PNOC-EC and Dragon Oil (Philippines SC 63) Limited wishes to advise that the Baragatan-1A well as at 23 June 2014 was preparing to drill ahead in 8 ½ “ hole at 2,329 meters Measured Depth (2,055.9 meters TVD sub-sea). Drilling progress since the 9 5/8” casing point has taken longer than predicted due to slow drilling of the Pagasa Formation claystone and elevated formation pressures. Nido expects to be at the primary reservoir objective in the next few days, based on forward drilling estimates. Nido wishes to further advise that during the drilling of the Pagasa Formation a gross interval from 1,977 - 2,004 meters Measured Depth (1,785 - 1,805 meters TVD sub-sea) comprising mainly sandstone and a gross interval from 2,207 – 2,236 meters Measured Depth (1,960 – 1,982 meters TVD sub-sea) comprising limestone contained elevated mud-log gas readings (C1 to C5) with oil shows recorded in the upper part of the limestone interval. It is unclear as to the significance or otherwise of these mud-log gas shows and this data will be considered for further evaluation once the primary reservoir objective has been drilled and the well has reached its planned Total Depth of 3,164 meters Measured Depth (2,700 meters TVD sub-sea).

Nido spuds Baragatan-1A

Nido Petroleum Limited (Nido) on behalf of SC 63 Joint Venture partners PNOC-EC and Dragon Oil (SC 63 Philippines) Limited wishes to advise that the Baragatan-1A well was successfully spudded on 25th May 2014. The 30” conductor pipe was run to a depth of 173.3 metres Measured Depth and successfully set across the unstable geological zone. Following the setting of the 30” conductor the well will be drilled to the 13 3/8” casing point around 982 meters Measured Depth (950 meters TVD sub-sea). Nido will provide further progress reports to the market at key casing points during the drilling of the well. The Baragatan-1A well is being drilled using the ‘UMW Naga 5’ jackup.

'UMW Naga 5' to re-spud Baragatan-1 well

Nido Petroleum (Nido) on behalf of the SC 63 joint venture partners PNOC-EC and Dragon Oil (SC 63 Philippines) has announced that the Bragatan-1 exploration which was spudded on the 15th May 2014 needs to be re-spudded. During the drilling of the 36” top-hole section the well encountered an unexpectedly unstable geological zone which precluded the setting of the 30” conductor pipe at the planned depth of 169.5m measured depth. The forward plan is to move the ‘UMW Naga 5’ rig approximately 100m for the current surface location and re-spud the well. Nido will provide further progress reports to the market at key casing points following the re-spudding of the well.
