Lundin, the Swedish oil and gas explorer based in Stockholm announced that it has kicked off its 2012 Malaysian drilling campaign with the spud of the Tiga Papan 5 well in the SB307 & SB308 Block offshore Sabah, East Malaysia. The well is the first of the five well programme planned in 2012 by Lundin Malaysia BV in its Malaysian Blocks. The Offshore Courageous, a 350’ Le Tourneau super 116 jack up from Seadrill, is assigned to the program. The well will target mid-Miocene aged sands of the Tiga Papan Unit previously tested in 1982 with the original discovery well that flowed at a cumulative rate of 5,631barrels of oil per day.
