PTTEP has kicked off a soil boring investigation for the Lang Lebah development wells located on Block SK 410B offshore Sarawak, East Malaysia. The initial work will focus on six proposed development wells designated CPP-WP2-CG01, -02, -03 and -04; BSL and BSF in a campaign expected to take less than a week.
