Woodside has made second Gas Discovery Offshore Myanmar's.
The company on Friday said Thalin-1A exploration well in Block AD-7 in the Rakhine Basin has intersected a gross gas column of approximately 64m. Approximately 62m of net gas pay is interpreted within the primary target interval.
Block AD-7 is located in the Bay of Bengal, approximately 100km offshore of the west coast of Myanmar. Water depth at the Thalin-1A well location is 836m. The well reached a total depth of 3034m.
Following drilling, wireline logging was conducted and confirmed the presence of a gas column through pressure measurements and gas sampling. The Gas Discovery at Thalin-1A follows an earlier gas discovery by Woodside at the Shwe Yee Htun-1 well in Block A-6, announced in January this year.
Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the two discoveries at opposite ends of the Rakhine basin was a great result for the company. “These results are very encouraging for future exploration and appraisal activity; given the significant footprint we have in Myanmar.” he said.
Thalin-1A is located in the northern part of the Rakhine basin approximately 60km west of the Daewoooperated producing Shwe field, which has onshore gas plant and pipeline gas export facilities.
With a 40 Percent Interest in AD-7, Woodside Energy (Myanmar) Pte Ltd, is the operator with respect to deepwater drilling. Daewoo International Corporation, with a 60 percent interest, is operator for all other operations.
