Bualuang Production to Restart in Early February

Salamander Energy provides the following update on repairs at the Bualuang oil field. On 8th January the company announced that, due to damage incurred to the risers during bad weather, production from the Bualuang oil field had been temporarily shut in.

Since this date, a full inspection has been completed by divers and replacement riser sections and piping spool materials have been moved to location. Good progress is being made, but following the loss of several working days due to further bad weather, production is now expected to restart in early February.

Development drilling is not impacted by these events, and two new production wells have been drilled and completed since the field was shut-in. These new wells will enter production as operations resume, the net effect being to continue Bualuang’s production expansion.

The Group’s production forecast for 2014 remains unchanged with production expected to average between 13,000 and 16,000 boepd.
