STOCKHOLM-- Exploration well 06/94-TV-1X (Toung Vi–1X) offshore Vietnam is dry, according to operator Pearl Energy.

The primary target of the well was the oil potential of the Mio-Oligocene Dua and Cau formations sandstones. Wireline logs indicate that no significant hydrocarbons are present in good quality sands in the objective section, the company says.

The semisubmersible Ocean General drilled the well to a target depth of 2,700 m (8 858 ft). The well is being plugged and abandoned as a dry hole.
