Singapore: KrisEnergy has said that Key Gibraltar jackup rig has commenced drilling of the Rossukon-2 exploration well in the G6/48 block, located in the Gulf of Thailand.
Rossukon-2 is planned to reach a total depth at 1,665m and will test early miocene stacked fluvial sandstones on a broad structural high. The well will also appraise the nearby Rossukon-1 reservoir, which tested 850 barrels of oil per day, and should identify additional volumes of oil that could move the discovery closer to commercial development.
The G6/48 block covers 566 sq km and lies to the north of G10/48, where the Wassana oil field is being developed. KrisEnergy holds a 30% working interest in the concession and is partnered by Northern Gulf Petroleum and Mubadala Petroleum.
Key Gibraltar is owned by Shelf Drilling and on charter with KirsEnergy for six months, being utilised at both G6/48 and the Wassana oil field.
