Salamander prepares insurance claim following well incident offshore Indonesia
Salamander Energy has started an insurance claim related to its drilling campaign offshore Indonesia.
North Kendang-1 encountered problems with high pressures, with substantial rig time spent getting the well under control following a gas kick.
The estimated $20-million claim has been filed for the cost of well control and loss of contractor equipment with an application for an early interim payment. A further claim related to the cost of re-drilling the well will also be submitted.
Salamander does not expect final settlement before end-2013.
