Lundin Petroleum says that its wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Malaysia BV (Lundin Malaysia) has made a small gas discovery with the Mengkuang-1 exploration well in license PM307, offshore Malaysia.
The well targeted hydrocarbons in Miocene aged sands 75 km to the northwest of the Bertam field operated by Lundin Malaysia.
Mengkuang-1 was drilled with the West Prospero jack-up rig to a total depth of 1,259 metres below mean sea level. The well encountered 9 metres of gas pay in the I-35 group Miocene channel sands. The well was plugged and abandoned.
