Offshore staff

EL DORADO, ArkansasMurphy Oil has achieved its highest average gas production to date from its fields offshore Sarawak during 3Q 2015.

Output totaled 291 MMcf/d (gross).

At the offshore Kakap-Gumusut main facility, the company drilled two successful new wells, Merapuh 5 and Marakas, and is evaluating development options.

However, the Paus-Kelasa well failed to encounter commercial quantities of hydrocarbons.

Offshore Vietnam, Murphy reached an agreement to farm into 35% of the 15-1/05 production-sharing contract in the oil-prone Cuu Long basin.

Operator PetroVietnam Exploration Production Corp. is appraising various oil discoveries in the concession, and recently completed the successful drilling and testing of well LDV-4X in two zones.
