Malaysia state oil firm Petroliam Nasional Berhad, or Petronas, on Feb. 24 said it has made an oil discovery at the Hidayah-1 exploration well in Indonesia through its subsidiary PC North Madura II Ltd.
“The well encountered an oil-bearing carbonate build-up with good reservoir qualities in the Ngimbang carbonate formation,” and tested at about 2,100 barrels of oil per day “with good crude quality,” Petronas said in a statement.
The company said results from the Hidayah-1 exploration well, located within the North Madura II production-sharing contract (PSC) offshore East Java, will be further assessed to ascertain its potential.
“The discovery at the Hidayah-1 exploration well marks an important milestone for the North Madura II PSC as it has proven oil potential of carbonate build-up in the area,” said Emeliana Rice-Oxley, Petronas vice president of exploration, upstream.
PC North Madura II Ltd. is the operator with 100% participating interest in the North Madura II PSC.
A study predicts massive industry consolidation and persisting bottlenecks in the Permian Basin.
Since 1933, the name Heath and the process of leak detection have been synonymous with the natural gas industry, particularly pipelines.
The project also includes about 420 kilometers of water, gas gathering and other pipelines, 120 TJ per day of additional compression, 670 kilometers of power lines, 25 kilometers of fiber optic cables and a new water-handling facility for irrigation.
