Wood­side Pe­tro­leum has added a fifth well to its Myan­mar drilling pro­gramme, fol­low­ing suc­cess­ful re­sults from the Thalin deep­wa­ter dis­cov­ery, ac­cord­ing to a re­port in OE Dig­i­tal on April 20.

The Thalin-1B ap­praisal well, a re-en­try and sidetrack of Thalin-1A, was “spud­ded” in late Fe­bru­ary. The sidetrack was suc­cess­ful and Thalin1B ac­quired 99m (100%re­cov­ery) of core and wire­line logs over the ob­jec­tive reser­voir in­ter­val, Wood­side con­firmed in its Q1 2017 re­port.

Block AD-7 is in the Bay of Ben­gal, some 100km off­shore of the west coast of Myan­mar. Wa­ter depth at Thalin-1A is 836m, which is the north­ern part of the Rakhine Basin.The oil and gas com­pany also re­vealed it has made some progress in nar­row­ing al­ter­na­tive ideas for the devel­op­ment of Browse basin off­shore Western Aus­tralia, which does not seem to in­clude a float­ing liq­ue­fied nat­u­ral gas (FLNG) con­cept, ac­cord­ing to the OE Dig­i­tal re­port.
