PTTEP confirms its largest-ever gas discovery


PTT Exploration and Production Public Company (PTTEP), through a wholly-owned subsidiary PTTEP HK Offshore Limited (Malaysia Branch) or PTTEP HKO, successfully completed the Lang Lebah-2 evaluation in the Sarawak SK 410B sector.

The exploration result is a new milestone for PTTEP’s biggest gas find.

Mr. Phongsthorn Thavisin, Chief Executive Officer of PTTEP, reported that the evaluation of the drilling of the Lang Lebah structure accompanied the gas discovery of its first exploration well, Lang Lebah-1RDR2, in 2019.

Larger than expected

The evaluation well Lang Lebah-2 was done in mid-January 2021. It was drilled to a total depth of 4,320 meters with more than 600 meters of net gas pay proven, suggesting a greater reservoir than the initial estimate. The well test indicates a flow rate of 50 million cubic feet of gas a day (MMSCFD). As a result, the project implementation plan will be accelerated.
