Mutiara, a 50:50 joint venture between Malaysian upstream company Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd and Shell E&P BV, announced on April 4 the Bunga Dahlia Channel exploration well discovery based on multiple gas zones being hit on reaching 2,260 m depth.

It was spudded on February 18 in water depth of 67 m.
