STOCKHOLM, Sweden – The jackup West Prospero has spudded the Tembakau-2 appraisal well in block PM307 offshore Malaysia.

According to operator Lundin Petroleum, the well targets stacked gas reservoirs in Miocene sands in a large, low-relief structure discovered by Tembakau-1 in late 2012.

That well penetrated 60 m (197 ft) of net gas sands in five good-quality sand intervals from 800-1,250 m (2,624-4,101 ft) subsea.

Tembakau-2, 3.7 km (2.3 mi) to the south, will core the main reservoir section and is expected to confirm the extent and quality of the gas reservoirs. Additionally, the company aims to test upside resource potential and to provide reservoir information for development planning.

The well will be drilled vertically to a subsurface depth of 1,400 m (4,593 ft) in 70 m (229 ft) of water. Drilling could last 60 days, including testing.
