Thailand’s PTT Exploration and Production (PTTEP) has registered a new record for its largest gas discovery with the successful completion of the Lang Lebah-2 appraisal well in the Sarawak SK 410B Project, located approximately 90 kilometers offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.
According to Phongsthorn Thavisin, PTTEP CEO, Lang Lebah-2 was drilled to a total depth of 4,320 meters with proven over 600 meters of net gas pay, indicating a larger reservoir than the initial estimate. The well test shows a flow rate of 50 million cubic feet of gas per day (MMSCFD), which is expected to accelerate the development plan for the project.
“We are delighted to confirm the largest-ever gas discovery by PTTEP. The experience and expertise from our operations in the Gulf of Thailand and overseas have contributed to this achievement. The Lang Lebah  gas discovery strengthens PTTEP’s investment base in Malaysia and demonstrates that our ‘Execute strategy’ has translated into reserves increase for the company’s long-term growth,” said the PTTEP CEO.
The appraisal well Lang Lebah-2 was completed in mid-January 2021.
PTTEP’s wholly-owned subsidiary PTTEP HK Offshore Limited (Malaysia Branch) or PTTEP HKO, is the operator of the project with 42.5% participating interest while KUFPEC Malaysia (KUFPEC) and PETRONAS Carigali (PCSB) hold 42.5% and 15% participating interests respectively.
PTTEP also jointly invests with PTT in the MLNG Train 9 Project, an LNG liquefaction plant, through PTT Global LNG Company.
