EDINBURGH, Scotland — Harbour Energy has completed the drilling of the Timpan-1 exploration well located 150 km offshore Indonesia in a water depth of 4,245 ft.
The well was drilled to a total vertical depth of 13,818 ft subsea. The well encountered a 390-ft gas column in a high net-to-gross, fine-grained sandstone reservoir with associated permeability of 1-10 mD. A full data acquisition program has been completed, including wireline logging, 240 ft of core recovered and a drillstem test.
The well flowed on test at 27 MMscf/d of gas and 1,884 bbl/d of associated 58ºAPI condensate through a 56/64-inch choke. While the well has encountered a material gas accumulation, further work will be required to establish commerciality and the full potential of this play across the license.
Gary Selbie, president director, Indonesia, said, “We are encouraged by the result of this play-opening exploration well. We look forward to working with our partners and the Government of Indonesia to determine the potential for commercialization of this important discovery.”
