KrisEnergy spuds exploration well in Gulf of Thailand

KrisEnergy has announced that the Key Gibraltar jack-up rig has started drilling of the Rossukon-3 exploration well in G6/48 in the Gulf of Thailand.

Rossukon-3 is the third exploration well to be drilled in the G6/48 contract area in 2015 following the evaluation of Rossukon-2 and Rossukon-2ST, which were drilled in March.

Rossukon-3 lies 1.9 km west of the Rossukon-2 surface location and 1.8 km northwest of the original Rossukon-1 discovery well, drilled in 2009. The well is planned to reach total depth at 7,468 feet (2,276 metres) measured depth (-6235 feet true vertical depth subsea) and will test Early Miocene fluvial sandstones on a broad structural high. Water depth at the Rossukon-3 well location is 208 feet.

G6/48 covers 566 sq. km over the Karawake Basin and lies to the north of the G10/48 licence, where KrisEnergy is developing the Wassana oil field. KrisEnergy took over operatorship of G6/48 in May 2014. The company holds a 30% working interest in the concession and is partnered by Northern

Gulf Petroleum Pte Ltd with 40% and Mubadala Petroleum with 30%. The Key Gibraltar jack-up rig is owned by Shelf Drilling (Southeast Asia) Limited. KrisEnergy has contracted the rig for a firm six months for its Thai drilling program, which includes the latest Rossukon series of wells in G6/48 and 15 development wells in the Wassana oil field.
