Extending the Highly Productive Gas Play in Sarawak, Offshore Malaysia

Map showing location of the Sirung-1 well in the shallow waters off the coast of Sarawak. PTTEP are continuing a winning streak on their acreage offshore Sarawak. The Thai company announced its offshore Sirung-1 exploration well as an oil and gas discovery, intersecting a column of more than 100m in Miocene clastic reservoirs. The well is in Block SK405B and is located in the shallow waters, approximately 137 km off the coast of Sarawak (Bintulu). PTTEP Sarawak Oil Limited is the operator with 59.5% participating interest. Moeco Oil and Petronas Carigali are partners. The Sirung-1 discovery is PTTEP’s third discovery offshore in the Sarawak Basin this year, following Lang Lebah-2 in SK410B and SK417’s Dokong-1. PTTEP plans to drill a Sirung appraisal well this year, along with several other prospects in this Sarawak acreage.
