LONDON – The Tom Hum Xanh 1X exploration well in block 31, Vinh Chau graben system, offshore southern Vietnam now is P&A’d according to Salamander Energy Plc.

The well was drilled to TVD of 2,103 m (6,700 ft) without finding hydrocarbons in the target strata.

“With an intensive exploration programme we expect some dry holes,” says James Menzies, CEO. “Nevertheless we are disappointed that drilling in this frontier basin has not offered more encouragement. Salamander’s drilling campaign will be moving on to the proven Kutei basin, offshore East Kalimantan, Indonesia.”
