Lundin comes up dry with Kitabu-1

Kitabu-1 exploration well, offshore Sabah, Malaysia, has been completed as a dry hole Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) has completed the Kitabu-1 well located in Blocks SB307/SB308, offshore Sabah, Malaysia. Objectives of the Kitabu-1 well were Miocene aged turbidite sands of similar age to the Shell operated South Furious 30 oil field, approximately four kilometres to the north. However, the primary reservoir interval resulted in being a poor quality siltstone, and no hydrocarbon shows were encountered in the well. The well has reached planned total depth of 2,270 metres and is to be plugged and abandoned as a dry hole. The well was drilled using Seadrill’s ‘West Prospero’ jackup rig.

Lundin spuds Kitabu-1 well in Malaysia

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) is pleased to announce that it has spud the Kitabu-1 exploration well in Block SB307/308, offshore Sabah, Malaysia. The Kitabu prospect is a stratigraphic trap located four kilometres to the north of the Shell-operated producing South Furious 30 oil field with target reservoirs in on lapping turbidite sandstones of the same Miocene sequence. Lundin Petroleum estimates the Kitabu prospect to have the potential to contain unrisked, gross prospective resources of 71 million barrels of oil equivalent.Kitabu-1 is a vertical well to be drilled by the jackup rig West Prospero to a depth of 2,270 metres in approximately 50 metres water depth. The drilling of the well is expected to take approximately 35 days. Lundin Petroleum holds a 42.5 percent interest in Block SB307/308 through its subsidiary Lundin Malaysia BV. Lundin Malaysia BV's partners are EnQuest with a 42.5 percent interest and Petronas Carigali with a 15 percent interest.

Lundin completes appraisal drilling in Malaysia

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin Petroleum) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first well in its 2014 Malaysian drilling campaign with the successful drilling and testing of Tembakau-2 appraisal well in Block PM307, offshore Malaysia. Tembakau-2 was drilled by the jackup rig ‘West Prospero’ to a depth of 1,450 metres in 68 metres water depth. The well-targeted stacked gas reservoirs in Miocene aged sands in a large, low-relief, structure discovered by Lundin Petroleum’s Tembakau-1 well in late 2012. Tembakau-2 is 3.7 kilometres to the south of the discovery well and penetrated 22 metres of gross gas sands in four sand intervals between 900 metres and 1300 metres subsea. The main two reservoirs penetrated were fully cored and the well was comprehensively logged. The reservoir deliverability was measured through production testing. The “I20” sand produced at stabilised flow rate of 15.8 million standard cubic feet per day of gas over a 8 hour period on 64/64” choke and the “I10” sand produced at stabilised flow rate of 15.9 million standard cubic feet per day of gas over a 8 hour period on 72/64” choke. Each perforated interval was 3 metres. The gas produced is dry with approximately 0.5% CO2. Multiple samples were obtained for further laboratory analysis. The data gathered will be analysed and integrated with 3D seismic information to update the current gross contingent resource estimate of gas and to provide reservoir information for conceptual development studies. Ashley Heppenstall, President and CEO, commented; “The appraisal drilling results from Tembakau are positive. We are incorporating the results of the well into an updated resource estimate. We will now move forward in reviewing conceptual development options and I am hopeful that this will lead to another commercial development project in Malaysia.” The well has been plugged and abandoned and the ‘West Prospero’ rig has moved to the Bertam oil field well head platform location, also in PM307, to commence development drilling. Lundin Petroleum holds a 75 percent interest in PM307 through its subsidiary Lundin Malaysia BV. Lundin Malaysia BV's partner is PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd. with 25 percent interest. Lundin Malaysia BV operates seven blocks in Malaysia, namely PM307, PM308A, PM308B, PM319, SB303and SB307/308.

Lundin Petroleum AB (Lundin) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the first well in its 2014 Malaysian drilling campaign with the spud of the Tembakau-2 appraisal well in Block PM307, offshore Malaysia. The well will target stacked gas reservoirs in Miocene aged sands in a large, low-relief, structure discovered by Lundin’s Tembakau-1 in late 2012.
