Myanmar: Woodside announces successful Thalin-1B appraisal well offshore Myanmar
20 Apr 2017
Woodside Energy reports success at the Thalin-1B appraisal well (a re-entry and side-track of Thalin-1A) spudded in late February. The side-track was successful and Thalin-1B has acquired 99m (100% recovery) of core and wireline logs over the objective reservoir interval.
Initial multi-rate drill stem test results from the lower reservoir section of Thalin-1B demonstrated sustained flow rates of approx. 50 mmscf/d for a 50 hour flow period on a 48/64 inch choke. The deliverability test indicated excellent reservoir quality. Preparations for a drill stem test of the upper reservoir are continuing.
Thalin-1B will be followed by the Thalin-2 appraisal well in Block AD-7. An additional firm exploration well has been committed to as part of the 2017 Myanmar drilling campaign. The campaign now comprises five firm (two appraisal and three exploration) and two contingent wells. Two exploration wells will be drilled in Block A-6 after Thalin-2, followed by a further exploration well in Block AD-7.
