KrisEnergy Ltd. announced the acquisition of 1300km 2D seismic data in the East Muriah production sharing contract (PSC) in the East Java Sea, Indonesia.
The Nordic Bahari seismic vessel commenced the acquisition on 6 Feb 2014.
East Muriah, which contains the East Lengo gas discovery, covers 3751sq km offshore East Java over the East Java Basin. Water depths in the East Muriah PSC are between 50 metres and 65m. The seismic acquisition program precedes the drilling of an appraisal well planned for 3Q 2014.
Chris Gibson-Robinson, KrisEnergy’s director of exploration & production, said: “We are acquiring this new seismic program to further delineate the East Lengo discovery and to confirm additional gas prospects in the block. The East Muriah PSC forms part of our East Java core area which includes the adjacent Bulu PSC.”
KrisEnergy holds a 50% operated working interest in the East Muriah PSC and is partnered by AWE Ltd., which holds the remaining 50%.
