Salamander Spuds West Kerendan-1 Well in Indonesia

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/9/2013, Location: Asia

Salamander Energy plc announces the spud of the West Kerendan-1 exploration well (WK-1), which lies within the Bangkanai PSC, in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Salamander has a 70% operated interest in the WK-1 well.

The WK-1 well has two main targets, the first of which is the Oligocene Berai Formation carbonates, which form the reservoir in the nearby Kerendan gas field. At West Kerendan, the Upper Berai forms the primary target and has mean recoverable resource potential of 330 Bcf. The WK-1 wellís secondary target comprises an underlying Eocene aged sandstone fairway in a large four way dip closed structure called Sungai Lahei. This higher risk Eocene target has mean recoverable prospective resource potential of 580 Bcf.

In addition, further prospective gas resource volumes will be targeted in the Lower Berai Formation, and oil potential will be assessed in shallower Miocene aged sandstones.

The WK-1 well will be drilled using the DrillCo-1 land rig to a true vertical depth sub-sea of 4,250 metres. Salamanderís costs on the WK-1 well are being partially carried by its partner, Saka Energi, who farmed in for a 30% interest in the Bangkanai PSC earlier this year.
