Woodside spuds latest Myanmar probe

Woodside Energy and partner Daewoo International have started drilling their latest exploration well offshore Myanmar just weeks after announcing a gas discovery in the region.

The latest well, the Thalin-1 well in Block AD-7, was spudded 20 January. 

On 4 January, Woodside announced a gas discovery at the Shwe Yee Htun-1 exploration well in Block A-6 in the Rakhine basin, offshore Myanmar.

At the time, Woodside said it about 15m of net gas pay was interpreted within the primary target interval. This has since been increased to about 32m following completion of nuclear magnetic resonance and resistivity image logging, formation fluid sampling and pressure testing. 

Extensive 2D and 3D seismic surveys (including gravity and magnetic data acquisition) over Woodside's blocks A-4, A-7, AD-2 and AD-5 offshore Myanmar starting late 2015, with work continuing into Q2 2016.

Programs of extensive seabed coring in these blocks are planned to start in 2016.

The AD-7 Production Sharing Contract has also been amended to provide for the expansion of Block AD-7, adding 1100sq km (70%) to the block’s area. A 1200sq km 3D survey will be acquired mainly in the expansion area in early 2016.
