Salamander Energy announced that the Hakuryu 5 semisubmersible drilling rig has departed Singapore and is under tow en route to the Bontang PSC, East Kalimantan, offshore Indonesia. It is expected to take approximately 12 days for the rig to arrive on location.
Once on location, the rig will be used to drill the Angklung-1 exploration prospect. Angklung is forecast to contain mean prospective resources of 125 MMboe, and the well will take approximately 39 days to drill on a dry hole basis.
The Bontang PSC is located across 2,185 sq. km of transition zone in the Kutei basin, East Kalimantan. The Bontang LNG plant is contained within the block, as well as numerous offshore prospects.
