PERTH, Australia – Mubadala Petroleum and Tap Oil expect to take a final investment decision next month on a new exploration drilling campaign close to the Manora oil field in the G1/48 license area in the Gulf of Thailand.

The program, likely to start in November, will comprise one or two exploration wells and a potential side track.

A discovery in the Inthanin prospect could be developed by deviated wells drilled from the Manora platform, Tap said.

A development of oil proven in the Yothaka – Krissana cluster would require investment in a new wellhead platform tied back to the Manora platform, where the oil would be processed and stored on the existing FSO.

Krissana is a three-way dip closure at all sand levels while the Yothaka prospect traps are an inverted flower structure at the 600 level and a faulted four-way dip closure at the 500 level.

Current plans favor a well on Yothaka prospect and, subject to the results, a side track from the same surface location to test the adjacent Krissana prospect.
