Salamander spuds exploration well offshore Thailand

September 18, 2013

Salamander Energy plc announced the spud of an exploration well in Block G4/50, Gulf of Thailand targeting the Ayutthaya prospect. Ayutthaya is located in the Western Central sub-basin, less than one mi northeast of the recent Surin oil discovery.

Targeting oil in Miocene sandstones, the well will be drilled to approximately 1.5 mi total vertical depth sub sea using the Atwood Mako jackup rig. It is estimated to contain mean prospective recoverable resources of 30 MMbo. 

Salamander focuses on Southeast Asia and operates in and around Greater Bualuang, Gulf of Thailand; North Kutei, Indonesia; and Greater Kerendan, Indonesia. The company has a 100% operated interest in Block G4/50 which surrounds the B8/38 Production Licence, containing the Bualuang oil field.
