LUNDIN PETROLEUM COMPLETES OFFSHORE PENINSULA MALAYSIA EXPLORATION WELL

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) has completed the Merawan Batu-1 exploration well in Block PM308B, offshore east coast Peninsula Malaysia. The exploration well targeted hydrocarbons in Oligocene aged sands in a faulted anticline in an undrilled area 50 km to the west of the Janglau oil discovery made by Lundin Petroleum in 2011. The objective reservoirs were successfully penetrated but proved to be water-bearing. The well will be plugged and abandoned as a dry hole. The jackup rig West Courageous will now move to drill the Tembakau prospect in Block PM307. Lundin Petroleum holds 75 percent interest in PM308B through its subsidiary Lundin Malaysia BV.

LUNDIN PETROLEUM DISCOVERS GAS IN ITS FIRST MALAYSIAN EXPLORATION WELL

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) is pleased to announce that it has discovered gas in the Tarap-1 well that was drilled in Block SB303, offshore Sabah, East Malaysia. Tarap-1 was drilled with the Offshore Courageous rig in a water depth of approximately 70 meters. The well was directionally drilled to a measured depth of 2,675 metres. The Tarap discovery is a stratigrahic trap and the well encountered gas in each of the 5 independently sealed stacked Miocene sands targeted. Gross total vertical pay thickness for the sands encountered is approximately 150 metres. An extensive data acquisition program was completed including pressure measurements, sampling and a mini flow test in selected zones. The data recovered from the well will be analysed further in order to determine a range of resource estimates. Ashley Heppenstall, President and CEO of Lundin Petroleum comments:" This is an encouraging start to the drilling campaign in Malaysia and provides strong support for our strategy in South East Asia of pursuing organic growth and value creation in focused core areas. With a large number of prospects and leads already identified within SB303, I'm confident that we can continue grow our resource base in this area in the coming years. Sabah currently has two gas demand centres located in Kota Kinabalu and Labuan Island that are supplied from existing offshore infrastructure. The addition of a third demand centre with the construction of the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal at Kimanis and the Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline gives us a broad range of options to explore for gas monetisation in the area." The rig will now move to drill the Cempulut prospect, also in SB303, the second well in Lundin Petroleum's five well drilling campaign in Malaysia in 2011. Lundin Petroleum holds a 75 percent interest in SB303 through its subsidiary Lundin Malaysia BV. Lundin Malaysia BV's partner is PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd with a 25 percent interest.
