Oil Search has announced that the Muruk 2 appraisal well, which is located in PDL 9 (Oil Search – 24.4%) in the PNG Highlands, started drilling on 10 November with High Arctic Rig 104.

Muruk 2 is around 11 km northwest of Muruk 1, and aims to constrain the potential resource volumes in the Muruk field. This potentially significant new gas field was identified in December 2016 by the Muruk 1 well.

In the statement, Oil Search claims that it is drilling the well on behalf of the PDL 9 joint venture that is operated by ExxonMobil.

Muruk 2 is targeting the Cretaceous Toro Sandstone reservoir and has an expected total depth of approximately 3500 m.
