Interra spuds Indonesia development well onshore South Sumatra

28th August 2014

Interra Resources has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Goldwater TMT Pte. Ltd. (GTMT), has commenced drilling development well TMT-60 at the Tanjung Miring Timur (TMT) field in South Sumatra, Indonesia

Interra estimates that the results of the drilling should be available in approximately eight weeks

TMT-60 is the first of four proposed development wells of the current 2014 drilling programme all to be drilled back-to-back using an externally contracted rig, and is a continuation of the successful drilling programme which began in October 2012 to test new geologic and reservoir concepts derived from the 2012 3D seismic survey.

GTMT has 100 per cent operating interest in the Technical Assistance Contract of the TMT field and the cost of drilling is funded from existing funds on hand.

TMT-60 is a direct northern offset to producing well TMT-53 which was completed in April 2013. To date, TMT-53 has produced more than 220,000 barrels of oil from the Talang Akar Formation (TAF).

TMT-60 will be drilled to a projected depth of 1,250 metres and is expected to be structurally slightly higher at TAF than TMT-53. The primary objective is to produce oil from these producing reservoirs with the secondary objectives being shallower reservoirs that are indicated to be very prospective from the data recorded in TMT-53.

Interra estimates that the results of the drilling should be available in approximately eight weeks.

The company will announce the results as soon as they may be ascertained as well as updates reflecting critical or unexpected events during drilling.

The company wishes to advise that investors should exercise due care and caution when trading Interra’s shares. It is not certain that the development drilling mentioned above will ultimately yield commercially recoverable hydrocarbons or profitable production.
