Sweden’s Lundin spuds off Malaysia

Lundin Petroleum has kicked off drilling at the fourth well of its 2012 drilling programme in Malaysia.

The Tembakau-1 exploration well on Block 307 was spud with the jack-up West Courageous, the Swedish company said.

Lundin Petroleum, a Swedish independent oil and gas exploration and production company, has been running for more than 3 decades.

According to Upstreamonline.com, the well is off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia in approximately 80 metres of water.

Lundin will chase Oligocene and Miocene sands in a low-relief structure 50 kilometres to Lundin’s 2011 north-west of Bertam-2 oil discovery.

Total depth is set to reach 1650 in two to three weeks.

Lundin is operator of the block with a 75% stake while Petronas Carigali holds the remainder.
