KrisEnergy Ltd., an independent upstream oil and gas company, has announced that the S.V. Nordic Bahari vessel has started acquisition of 1,200 km 2D seismic data in the Sakti production sharing contract (“PSC”) offshore East Java, Indonesia.
The acquisition program was awarded to PT. Alamjaya Makmur Sejahtera in consortium with PT. Bahari Lines Indonesia. The 2D program is part of the work obligations under the PSC. Immediately following the completion of the 2D seismic program, 400 sq km of 3D seismic data is scheduled to be acquired by PT. CGG Services Indonesia. The 3D seismic acquisition program is expected to start at the end of September.

Sakti is adjacent to the Bulu PSC, where we have submitted a development plan for the Lengo gas field, and will form part of our gas aggregation plans into the gas-hungry East Java market.”
