Oil and gas exploration and production company Salamander Energy has begun drilling on the North Kendang-1 exploration well in the South East Sangatta production sharing contract in which Salamander has a 75 per cent operated interest.

The well will be drilled to a depth of around 2,600m, targeting gas and oil pay.

The combined mean pre-drill estimate of prospective recoverable resources is about 770bn cubic feet and 91m barrels of oil.

The well will be drilled by the Ocean General semi-submersible rig in a water depth of 465 metres, the group said.

On completion of the North Kendang well the rig will return to the Bontang PSC to drill the Bedug prospect. The Bedug location is 4.0km east and 500m up-dip of the recent South Kecapi oil and gas discovery, it added.
