KrisEnergy Ltd has announces that the Key Gibraltar jack-up rig has commenced drilling of the Rossukon-3 exploration well in G6/48 in the Gulf of Thailand
The well is planned to reach total depth at 2,276 metres measured depth and will test Early Miocene fluvial sandstones on a broad structural high.

Rossukon-3 is the third exploration well to be drilled in the G6/48 contract area in 2015 following the evaluation of Rossukon-2 and Rossukon-2ST, which were drilled in March.

Rossukon-3 lies 1.9 kilometres west of the Rossukon-2 surface location and 1.8 kilometres northwest of the original Rossukon-1 discovery well, drilled in 2009.

The well is planned to reach total depth at 2,276 metres measured depth and will test Early Miocene fluvial sandstones on a broad structural high.

Water depth at the Rossukon-3 well location is 63 metres.

G6/48 covers 566 square kilometres over the Karawake Basin and lies to the north of the G10/48 licence, where KrisEnergy is developing the Wassana oil field.

KrisEnergy took over operatorship of G6/48 in May 2014. The company holds a 30 per cent working interest in the concession and is partnered by Northern Gulf Petroleum Pte Ltd with 40 per cent and Mubadala Petroleum with 30 per cent.

The Key Gibraltar jack-up rig is owned by Shelf Drilling (Southeast Asia) Limited.

KrisEnergy has contracted the rig for a firm six months for its Thai drilling programme, which includes the latest Rossukon series of wells in G6/48 and 15 development wells in the Wassana oil field.
