Salamander Concludes North Kendang-2 Drilling Operations

Salamander Energy plc announces that drilling operations on the North Kendang-2 exploration well (“NK-2”) in its operated South East Sangatta PSC have now been concluded.

The well reached a total depth of 2,569 meters true vertical depth subsea and encountered two hydrocarbon bearing intervals, one of which was the primary objective zone of high pressure encountered in the NorthKendang-1 (“NK-1”) well.

This was successfully penetrated in NK-2 and comprised a 2.5m gas condensate bearing sand. In addition, a 10.5m gas bearing sand with oil shows was encountered at a shallower depth.

This sand is at the same stratigraphic interval that flowed 6,000 bopd on test in the South Kecapi-1 DIR/ST well in the Bontang PSC.

The volume of hydrocarbons encountered is considered to be sub-commercial and the NK-2 well has been plugged and abandoned.

Costs related to the NK-1 well control incident, and to drilling the NK-2 well to this same depth, are covered under the Company’s insurance policies.This well concluded Salamander’s drilling programme in the North Kutei and the Ocean General rig has now been released.
