KUFPEC strikes gas offshore Indonesia

Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC) has made its first operated offshore exploration discovery with its Anambas-2X well in the Anambas Block offshore Indonesia.

The probe hit commercial quantities of gas and condensate in the Natuna Sea near an existing block in which KUFPEC is a partner. KUFPEC won the Anambas Block, which it owns 100%, through a competitive bidding process in 2019.

The well was drilled in 288 feet of water, using a jack-up rig to reach a total depth of 10,509 feet.

KUFPEC Indonesia’s production sharing contract has a license term of 30 years, including a six-year exploration period. As part of the drilling campaign, KUFPEC conducted two drill stem tests so far, one in the Lower Gabus formation and the other in the Intra Keras formation. These tests resulted in a stabilised combined flow rate of 7 MMscfd of natural gas and 1,240 stb/d of condensate from the two formations. KUFPEC said it intends to conduct more tests on other formations within the same well.

Upon reaching its main drilling objective in the Lower Gabus formation, KUFPEC utilised well deepening operation techniques to successfully penetrate thicker and cleaner reservoirs. The outcomes of the well deepening program provided an upside to the original well objectives and identified potential further exploration opportunities in the deeper formations. KUFPEC said it will also continue implementing testing programs for three reservoirs in the Arang formation, which could produce even higher gas rates.
