Conrad to kick off Mako drilling ‘within days’

Conrad Petroleum will start drilling an appraisal well at its Mako prospect, in the Duyung Production Sharing Contract, offshore Indonesia, within days, according to a partner in the project. 

Conrad Petroleum is the operator of the PSC with 90% interest and Empyrean Energy is its partner with the remaining 10% interest.

Duyung PSC is set in the Natuna Sea in water depths of 60-100 meters and associated shallow drilling depths of up to 2,000 feet. It includes the Mako shallow gas discovery which, according to the LEAP CPR, is estimated to contain 400 Bcf to 1.3 Tcf of gas in place.

Empyrean reported on Friday that the COSL Seeker jack-up rig had arrived on location for the drilling of the Mako South-1 well. The jack-up is presently continuing to rig up in preparation for drilling operations to start within days, Empyrean added.

The objective of the well is to flow test the gas sands and provide key data on the permeability and gas saturation properties of the reservoir.

Earlier this week, Empyrean said that the Mako project drilling would establish reservoir quality and conduct a gas flow test on the 430-650 Bcf conventional contingent gas resource.

Regarding its other operations, Empyrean informed that the seismic acquisition program on its 100 percent owned Block 29/11, offshore China, is progressing well with approximately 1/3 of the acquisition complete. The program started earlier this month and it is conducted by China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL).

“The data collected so far has been of good quality,” the company briefly concluded.
