Interra Resources (Interra) has said that its jointly controlled entity Goldpetrol, has completed the drilling of YNG 3234 in the Yenangyaung oil field in Myanmar as an oil producer.
Interra has a 60% interest in the improved petroleum recovery contract of the Yenangyaung oil field and also owns 60% of Goldpetrol, which is the operator of the field. YNG 3234 was drilled using Goldpetrol’s cooper LTO 350 rig and as such, drilling costs have been minimized, the company said.
YNG 3234 is producing through perforations in five lower sand objectives at rate of 68 barrels oil per day. This well is a continuation of Goldpetrol’s focus on drilling shallow to intermediate depth wells and optimized reactivations of old wells that have been identified from geologic and reservoir engineering studies.
——————————-Interra Resources Updates On MS-1 Well In Mae Sot Basin, Western Thailand
Interra Resources Limited (Interra Resources), a Singapore-based company engaged in upstream petroleum exploration and production, has provided an update on its MS-1 well in the Mae Sot basin of Western Thailand.
As previously reported Interra Resources’ wholly owned subsidiary, Interra Resources (Thailand) Limited (IRT), has a 50% interest in Block L17/48 (totalling 3,996 square kilometres) where the drill site is located.
IRT is the operator of record with the Thailand Department of Mineral Fuels (DMF) and as such, is responsible for all current drilling activities and any future project work in the exploration block. IRT also has a 50% interest and is the operator of two other exploration blocks, namely Blocks L3/48 and L9/48 (totalling 5,915 square kilometres).
MS-1 has been drilled to a total depth of 5,770 feet as of December 7, 2009 and after careful review, it has been determined that enough data has been collected to warrant making the decision to cease drilling. Although some zones of hydrocarbon source rocks were encountered in the borehole, the desired reservoir rocks required for hydrocarbon accumulations were not intercepted.
As such, there were no hydrocarbon shows recorded in the well, or other encouraging data which would allow the well to be completed as a hydrocarbon producing well. The well has therefore been plugged and abandoned.
IRT commenced this project with the realization that this was a true high risk/high reward wildcat, based on this being the first well in the basin and with the nearest producing well approximately 125 kilometres to the east and in a different geologic basin.
A further comprehensive evaluation of collected borehole data and all previously obtained geologic and geophysical will commence immediately to determine the effects and implications of this well on future work plans for this block (also Blocks L3/48 and L9/48).
