SHELL OPENS MALAYSIA
Royal Dutch Shell PLC has made another natural gas discovery on Block SK318 offshore Malaysia with the deepwater Marjoram-1 well, which was drilled in 800 m of water 180 km offshore.
Shell earlier this year announced the Rosmari-1 gas discovery, which was also drilled on Block SK218 (OGJ Online, Apr. 17, 2014). That well was drilled to 2,123 m total depth and encountered a 450-m gas column. Shell said at the time that the discovery was "a positive indicator of the gas potential in the area."
Shell operates Block SK318 with 85% interest. Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. holds the remaining interest.
