Project Description
The 2009 Rossukon oil discovery is locate in Block G6/48 in the Gulf of Thailand. Rossukon-1 was drilled by the Emerald Driller (375' ILC)to a depth of 6,830 feet. Just over 30 feet of net oil pay was discovered in Oligocene and Miocene sands and a well test achieved a rate of 890 bopd from a single zone. 2C resources are estimated at roughly 2.51 MMboe but accurate volumes are not clear due to uncertain reservoir distribution.

An August 2013 3D survey was carried out over the area and 2 appraisal well are expected to be drilled in 2014.

KrisEnergy Drills Final Russukon Well
Type: New Discovery

Apr. 2015 - Shelf Drilling jackup Key Gibraltar (300'-IC) has drilled the fourth and final Rossukon exploration well for KrisEnergy in the Gulf of Thailand. The Rossukon-3ST sidetrack was drilled in 208 feet of water to a measured depth (MD) of 6,645 feet. It intersected approximately 85 feet true vertical depth (TVD) of net oil-bearing sandstones and 63 feet TVD of net gas-bearing sandstones over several reservoir intervals. All four wells Rossukon wells in Block G6/48 encountered oil and gas and KrisEnergy is now assessing development plan for the field. It has the Key Gibraltar under contract until the end of November and will take the rig next to nearby Block G10/48 to drill the Rayrai-1 exploration well. That will be followed by a 15-well development program in the Wassana field.

KrisEnergy Spuds Rossukon-2
Type: Drilling Operations

Mar. 2015 - KrisEnergy commenced drilling their Rossukon-2 exploration well in Block G6/48 offshore Thailand using the Key Gibraltar (300' ILC). Planned total depth of the well is 5,462 feet and it is designed to test Early Miocene stacked fluvial sandstones on a broad structural high. The well is also planned to test the Rossukon-1 reservoir with the hopes that the discovery could be brought into commercial development. Once operations are finished at Rossukon, KrisEnergy plans to move the rig to their Wassana Field for development work.

KrisEnergy Grabs Key Gibraltar for 6-Month Thai Drilling Program
Type: Operator Update

Jun. 2014 - KrisEnergy secured the services of Shelf Drilling's Key Gibraltar (300' ILC) for a 6-month drilling program in the G10/48 and G6/48 licenses in the Gulf of Thailand. The program will commence in January 2015. Between 12 and 14 development wells are expected to be drilled in the G10/48 license in support of the Wassana field development. KrisEnergy expects first oil from Wassana in 2H 2015. Once completed, the rig will mobilize to the G6/48 license to appraise the 2009 Rossukon discovery.

KrisEnergy Improves Position in the Gulf of Thailand with G6/48 Acquisition
Type: Acreage Acquisition

May. 2014 - Thai regulatory approval was recently granted for a March 2013 farm-out agreement between KrisEnergy and Mubadala Petroleum concerning the G6/48 block in the Gulf of Thailand. KrisEnergy now serves as the block operator with a 30% stake and its partners include Mubadala (30%) and Northern Gulf Petroleum (40%). Although it has been very active in the Gulf of Thailand, G6/48 will be the company's first operated asset in the region. Contained within the block in the 2009 Rossukon oil discovery, an extensive 3D seismic survey was carried out over Rossukon in August 2013 and an appraisal drilling program is planned for later this year in an effort to delineate the discovery.

Discovery (Drilled) - Apr 2015 to -

KrisEnergy drilled 4 exploration wells in the block and made discoveries with each one. It is now assessing development plans for the field.
