Jan 22, 1997 01:00 AM

The Malaysia-Thailand Joint Authority (MTJA) has confirmed that gas has been discovered in the Muda Field of their Joint Development Area (JDA) after successful drilling and testing of the Muda-3 appraisal well by the contractors. The Muda-3 well has been drilled to a depth of 2,944 meters. Gas finds were confirmed over the field located some 272 kilometres east of Thailand's Songkhla and 178 kilometres north-west of Malaysia's Kota Bharu. Four drill stem tests yielded a combined stable gas flow rate of 22 million cubic feet per day and 259 barrels per day of condensate. MTJA is a statuary body vested with the exclusive rights, power, liberties and privileges of exploring and exploiting petroleum resources in the JDA under the MTJA Acts 1990 of Malaysia and Thailand.
