Murphy reviews offshore Sarawak development options

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.
