North Kutei

Salamander has two operated blocks in the North of the basin with extensive 3D seismic coverage. Over 25 leads and prospects have been generated from this data. In 2010 Salamander made the play-opening Angklung discovery that flowed 26 MMscfd from good quality Pliocene aged channel sandstones.

This was followed by a three well programme in 1H 2013 that resulted in the South Kecapi oil discovery and North Kendang gas discovery. 

A follow up on North Kendang is scheduled before end 1H 2014 with the majority of the cost being covered by an insurance claim relating to the North Kendang-1 well (see here for more details).
