InterOil Corp. has reported that wireline logging from the Antelope-4 sidetrack-1 well in Petroleum Retention License 15 in Papua New Guinea has confirmed a southern extension of the Elk-Antelope field's high quality, gas-bearing dolomite.

The logs measured 182 vertical m (597 ft) of dolomite and a vertical gross gas column of about 339 m (1112 ft).

InterOil Chief Executive, Dr Michael Hession, said: "Our interpretation of data from Antelope-4 and Antelope-5 suggests that the field-wide gas-water contact is deeper than previously interpreted."

The PRL 15 joint venture intends to begin drilling Antelope-6 in December 2015 as part of the appraisal programme to define the resource for the Papua LNG Project.
