Lundin Petroleum has commenced drilling of the Imbok-1 exploration well in Blocks SB307 and SB308, offshore East Malaysia.
The Imbok prospect is in shallow water and lies to the east and south of two major producing fields in offshore East Malaysia. The well will target hydrocarbons in Miocene aged sands.
Imbok-1 will be drilled with the West Prospero jack-up rig to a total depth of approximately 1,700 metres below sea level and is expected to take approximately 30 days.
Lundin Malaysia holds 85% working interest in SB307 and SB308, with partner Petronas holding the remaining share.
Lundin Malaysia operates seven blocks in Malaysia.
