Mubadala Petroleum has come up dry with an exploration well on the G11/48 licence in the Gulf of Thailand.
The Rojana-1 well was drilled to a total depth of 4916 feet using the jack-up Atwood Orca but failed to encounter any significant hydrocarbon shows in the target reservoirs.
Rojana-1 was the final commitment well for the G11/48 licence where Mubadala and its partners are developing the Nong Yao oilfield, which is expected to start production in the first half of next year.
The licence covers 3374 square kilometres in the southern margin of the Pattani basin and the north-west margin of the Malay basin and also contains the Angun and Mantana discoveries.
Mubadala operates G11/48 with a 67.5% stake and is partnered by KrisEnergy and Palang Sophon which hold a 22.5% and 10% interest respectively.
