JV partner Cue Energy Resources has announced that the Sampang PSC Joint Venture has approved the drilling of the Paus Biru-1 exploration well, offshore Indonesia. The Paus Biru prospect is located in the Sampang PSC, Indonesia, 27km east from the producing Oyong gas field.

Paus Biru-1 will test a four way dip structural closure targeting the Pliocene Mundu Formation analogous to the hydrocarbon producing zone in Oyong and Wortel gas fields.

The location of the well was determined based on recent 3D seismic mapping with visible amplitude anomalies. Geophysical and geotechnical site surveys are currently underway to determine the final well location. The water depth in the area is approx. 48 metres and the well is planned to be drilled in Q4 2018 to a depth of 650 metres using a jack up drilling rig, which is currently being sourced.

Paus Biru-1 will fully evaluate the Paus Biru prospect and a comprehensive evaluation suite will be run on the well. Post drilling, the well will be plugged and abandoned in all outcomes. If successful, a horizontal development well would be drilled at a later date and tied into Oyong and the Grati onshore gas processing facility.

Santos, as Operator of the PSC, will operate the drilling of the well. Santos have significant experience safely operating well drilling in the Sampang PSC and the adjoining Madura Offshore PSC, including 2 wells in 2016.

The Paus Biru-1 well aligns with Cue’s strategy of disciplined growth and realising value from existing assets. If successful, the Paus Biru prospect will not only directly add reserves to the Sampang PSC but also further extend the life of the Oyong and Wortel fields by supporting the field economics.

Participants in the Sampang PSC are: Santos (Operator) 45%; Singapore Petroleum Company 40%; Cue 15%.
