Block 07/03 in Vietnam

Pan Pacific Petroleum (PPP) confirmed that operations at the Premier-operated Ca Rong Do (Red Emperor) exploration discovery well within Block 07/03 Production Sharing Contract, offshore Vietnam, are currently under way to plug and abandon the well, as planned.

The well encountered oil and gas shows while drilling and the results of logging established approximately 90m net pay comprising both oil and gas within multiple stacked reservoir layers. Two of these reservoir zones were tested and flowed oil at a combined rate of 3,265.4 barrels of oil per day plus 8.1 million standard cubic feet of gas per day, through a 48/64” choke. No water was produced from either zone.

It is now planned to conduct a 3D seismic survey to define the resource potential of the Ca Rong Do discovery and adjacent structures, and to determine future exploration and appraisal activity. Planning for the 3D is at an advanced stage with the intention of acquiring the survey in July this year.

The discovery of oil and gas is very encouraging; evaluation of an appraisal of the Ca Rong Do discovery will follow the results of the 3D Seismic Survey. A second exploration well, which is a commitment under the terms of the PSC, is planned in Q4 2009.

Block 07/03 covers 4,915 km2 in the prospective Nam Con Son Basin, and is adjacent to block12W which contains the Chim Sao and Dua Oil Fields.
