Atwood Mako Rig Spudded First Well

Salamander Energy plc announces that the Atwood Mako jack up rig (the “Mako”) has arrived on location and commenced development drilling from the Bualuang Alpha platform on the Group’s B8/38 licence in the Gulf of Thailand.

The Mako is on long term contract, and will initially complete a short development drilling programme on the Bualuang Alpha Platform. Salamander will then be using the rig to drill two exploration prospects on its acreage in the Greater Bualuang area ahead of an extended development drilling campaign from the Bualuang Bravo platform from the end of October.
