Dry well for Lundin in Malaysia
Lundin Petroleum has completed the Kitabu-1 well located in Blocks SB307/SB308, offshore Sabah, Malaysia.
Objectives of the Kitabu-1 well were Miocene aged turbidite sands of similar age to the Shell operated South Furious 30 oil field, approximately four kilometres to the north.
However the primary reservoir interval resulted in being a poor quality siltstone, and no hydrocarbon shows were encountered in the well. The well has reached planned total depth of 2,270 metres and is to be plugged and abandoned as a dry hole.
The well is being drilled using the West Prospero jack-up rig.
Lundin Petroleum holds 42.5 percent interest in Blocks SB307/SB30 through its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Malaysia BV. Partners are EnQuest with a 42.5 percent interest and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd with a 15 percent interest.
