Pan Orient's Thai well disappoints

January 5, 2018

Pan Orient Energy said the L53AC-C1 deviated onshore exploration well in Thailand was drilled to 1453m and encountered two zones of interest based on oil shows observed while drilling and open hole wireline logs.

Upon further investigation of these two zones of interest through acquired pressure data and fluid samples, the zones were determined to be dominantly water bearing. Preparations are currently underway to plug and abandon the well.

The L53AC-C1 exploration will fulfil the $600,000 minimum annual exploration expenditure that is required to retain all the remaining acreage of the original concession, outside of existing production licenses.

The go forward Concession L53 activities will include a multi-well workover program that is expected to commence in late January 2018, and permitting/preparations for two additional exploration locations, one of which will be drilled in mid to late 2018.
