– CAMAC Energy Inc., Houston, and PetroChina CBM Co. have spud the ZJS-3 coalbed methane well on the 175,000-acre Zijinshan contract area in Shanxi Province east of Yulin in China’s Ordos basin.

The well is at 3,300 ft and projected to 4,500-5,500 ft. Mud logs have shown gas readings from several penetrated sands, CAMAC Energy said. The companies plan to flow test this well, drill two more wells, and reinterpret seismic in 2011.
