KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia– PETRONAS has reported two major gas discoveries offshore Sarawak.

The Kuang North-2 exploration well in block SK316 penetrated a 636-m (2,087-ft) gas column. The well was drilled to a TD of 3,223 m (10,574 ft). Preliminary assessments indicate gas-in-place for the Kuang North field is about 2.3 tcf.

The Tukau Timur Deep-1 well was drilled to a depth of 4,830 m (15,846 ft) and discovered 12 gas-bearing reservoirs with total net gas sand of 183 m (600 ft). This is the first completed high-pressure/high-temperature well in Sarawak and is also the deepest vertical well to be drilled by PETRONAS.

Preliminary assessments indicate the total gas-in-place for Tukau Timur field is about 2.1 tcf. PETRONAS Carigali operates block SK307 with 50% interest and Sarawak Shell Berhad holds the remaining 50% interest.
