MEO Australia: Blockage at Gurame Well (Indonesia)

MEO Australia Blockage at Gurame Well (Indonesia)

MEO Australia is facing an unforeseen delay at its Gurame SE-1X well, which is being drilled offshore North Sumatra, Indonesia in the Seruway PSC.

Since the last report, 9 5/8″ casing was run to 2,412mmMDRT before a blockage prevented mud circulation. All casing was recovered in good condition and the Hercules #208 drilling rig is currently running in hole to clean out and condition the well. The forward plan is to re-run and cement 9 5/8″ casing prior to drilling out into the first target reservoir, the Baong sands.

MEO’s CEO and MD Jürgen Hendrich said: “The blockage encountered represents an unforeseen delay in what has otherwise been a smooth running operation. We look forward to drilling out into the first objective once the 9 5/8″ casing has been re-run and cemented in place.”

The Gurame gas and oil field was discovered in 1968.  MEO’s internal resource assessment estimated the P50 recoverable resource of the Gurame field to be 0.5 Tcf of low CO2 gas and 57 mmbbl of liquids.
