The Sintok-1 well was drilled in block SK320, 240 km (149 mi) northwest of Bintulu, to a TD of 2,775 m (9,104 ft). It encountered gas in the main target reservoir.
Analysis of well data indicates a 292-m (958-ft) gas column. Studies continue to assess the volume of the discovery.
This was the third gas find on the block since it was awarded in February 2010.
