Brunei: Kulczyk rigs up to drill triple junction structure

By OGJ editors

Kulczyk Oil Ventures Inc., Calgary, said its AED Southeast Asia Ltd. subsidiary is rigging up to drill the Lukut Updip-1 well on the onshore portion of 1,123 sq km Block L in Brunei.

LKU-1 is the first exploratory well to be drilled in the Brunei Block L Phase 2 drilling campaign. The well will test the potential of a “triple junction” structure that has formed where the Belait and Jerudong anticlines intersect the Simbatang fault.

The primary targets, at a true vertical depth of 2,000 m, are base slope sand deposits of Middle Miocene age with as much as 250 m of anticipated aggregate thickness. Overpressure is expected, and Kulczyk will use managed pressure drilling techniques.

KOV has a 90% interest in Block L with indirect wholly-owned subsidiary Kulczyk Oil Brunei Ltd. having a 40% interest and indirect wholly-owned subsidiary AED SEA as operator holding 50%. A private Brunei company has the other 10%.
