The company plans to factor the results into its field development planning process in the region.
ThePyi Thit-1 well in offshore block A-6 intersected a gross gas column of around 65 m (213 ft), with 36 m (118 ft) of net pay interpreted within the main targeted interval.
A subsequent drillstem test flowed 50 MMcf/d over a 44-hr period with strong reservoir support.
However, the other two wells were unsuccessful. Pyi Tharyar-1 in the same block penetrated a thin column of gas-saturated sands, deemed sub-commercial, while Khayang Swal-1 in block AD-7 encountered water-wet sands.
