KrisEnergy outlines offshore Cambodia 3D seismic survey goals

KrisEnergy has submitted documentation to the Cambodian Ministry of Environment for a proposed 1,200-square kilometre (463-square mile) 3D seismic survey next year over offshore block A.


This would fulfil the Years 1-2 commitment under the block’s amended petroleum agreement.


The programme covers a large prospective area in the south-western part of block A, which only has sparse legacy 2D seismic lines. It would also improve data quality over a prospective geological trend in the western section of the block, where several discoveries have been made.


Plans include 200 square kilometres (77 square miles) of 3D coverage over the Apsara oil development area, the aims being to improve data quality for final design of well trajectories, and to acquire data before installation of Platform A.


Offshore Thailand, the PV Drilling I jack-up has was mobilised to the Wassana field area to start drilling of five firm infill wells for KrisEnergy, plus one optional infill well.
