Ayutthaya is located in the Western Central sub-basin, some 7 km northeast of the recent Surin oil discovery. The well will target oil in Miocene sandstones and is estimated to contain mean prospective recoverable resources of 30 MMbo.

The well will be drilled to approximately 2,350 metres total vertical depth sub-sea using the Atwood Mako jack up rig.
