KrisEnergy spuds Mancharee-1 (Thailand)

Water depth at the Mancharee-1 well location is 170 feet (51.8 metres). The well is planned to be  drilled to a total depth of 12,420 feet measured depth (-10,650 feet total vertical depth subsea) and  will evaluate a series of stacked sandstone reservoirs of Miocene and Oligocene age. Mancharee-1 lies to the west of the Mayura oil discovery, which requires further appraisal. G10/48 also holds the  Niramai oil accumulation, which lies to the north of the Wassana oil development.

Chris Gibson-Robinson, KrisEnergy’s Director Exploration & Production, commented: “Mancharee-1 is the first exploration well to be drilled in G10/48 since we took over operatorship of the block in May 2014. We are also pressing ahead with the Wassana project and have locked in vital elements for the development such as the processing facilities and the rig to drill the development wells. Our progress is in line with our timetable for first oil in the second half of 2015.”
KrisEnergy holds 100% working interest in G10/48, which covers 4,696 sq km over the southern section of the Pattani Basin in water depths up to 60 metres. The West Cressida jack-up rig is owned by Seadrill Far East Limited.
