Santos: Bestari appraisal meets expectations (Malaysia)

Japan’s JX Nippon has completed drilling of the Bestari-2 appraisal well, offshore Sabah, Malaysia, and according to Santos, a partner in the project, the initial results are in line with expectations.

The well, testing the Bestari oil discovery, located offshore Malaysia in the Block R Production Sharing Contract, was drilled during the fourth quarter of 2015, using the Ocean Rover semi-submersible drilling rig.

Apart from saying the results met expectations, Santos did not provide more details, only adding that further evaluation will be carried out over the coming year.

The initial discovery well, Bestari-1, was drilled in March 2015 and encountered 67 meters of net oil pay in multiple sand packages with good porosity and permeability. Australia’s Santos has a 20% interest in the Block R PSC.
