Mubadala Spuds Malida-1 Well Offshore Thailand.

Tap Oil Limited, an independent oil and gas exploration company based in Australia, today announced that Malida-1 well, located in the northern Gulf of Thailand was spudded on November 15. 


The Malida-1 exploration well is located in the G1/48 concession in the Gulf of Thailand approximately 5 kilometres northeast of the Manora oil development. Mubadala Petroleum  is the operator of G1/48.

The well will test for the development of the main Miocene age interval of the Manora oil bearing sands in an independent fault dependent structure, east of the Manora field and further into the basin.

“Success at Malida-1 could open up a new oil fairway,” said Tap Oil, which holds a 30% share in the concession.

Contingent well operations (including deepening Malida-1 to test the underlying Oligocene section and possible side-tracking) may be undertaken in the event of success at Malida-1.

The well is being drilled in shallow water and will be drilled to approximately 2,670 metres measured depth (2,640 metres true vertical depth). The well is expected to take 18 days on a trouble free dry hole basis.
