ConocoPhillips is forging ahead with an exploration and appraisal drilling campaign offshore Malaysia, which it was forced to abort last year after the contracted drilling rig listed and sank on location.

Icon Offshore’s jack-up Icon Caren this week is en route to the US oil major’s Block WL4-00 offshore Sarawak, East Malaysia for a three-well campaign.

First out of the traps is expected to be the Gagau-1 exploration well, which will be followed by the Salam-3 and Benum-2 appraisal wells.
