BC Petroleum (a ROC, Dialog Group and Petronas venture) discovered 87m of hydrocarbon pay in multiple zones of the Balai-2 well off east Malaysia. Drilled to 2266m TD, Balai-2 targeted a shallow carbonate reservoir and a deeper series of stacked sandstone reservoirs. The sandstone contains an estimated 47m of net hydrocarbon pay with seven hydrocarbon-bearing reservoirs in a total interval thickness of 310m. The secondary limestone target contains 40m of gas pay with one hydrocarbon-bearing reservoir in a total interval thickness of 830m. Balai-2 has been cased and completed for extended well testing.
