PSC TL-OT-17-08


The PSCs establish a 50:50 joint venture between TIMOR GAP ONSHORE BLOCK & TIMOR GAP ONSHORE BLOCK C and its partner Timor Resources, with the latter assuming the Operatorship. Both parties committed to a 7 years Exploration Work Programme with Minimum Exploration Work Requirements covering technical studies, Geology and Geophysical studies, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Environmental Management Plan, 2D seismic data planning and execution, and a drilling commitment to a minimum cumulative depth of 2000 meters during the Initial Period. Pursuant to the Minimum Exploration Work Requirements set for the Initial Period, that stipulates the acquisition, processing and interpretation of 100 kilometers 2D Seismic Survey, the onshore Vibroseis Fafulu 2D Seismic Acquisition Survey was conducted and concluded in 2018 in Block A, with the acquisition of 186km of seismic data. The 2D seismic data acquired during this survey was processed and interpreted during 2019, with the findings confirming the existence of several prospective structures within the permit area.
TIMOR GAP ONSHORE BLOCK and its partner Timor Resources are finalizing the preparation for the drilling campaign within the Block A permit, which is expected to commence in early 2020. The campaign anticipates the drilling of up to five exploration wells corresponding to the prospects of Karau, Kumbili (with a dual target), Laisapi, Lafaek and Raiketan. The proposed exploration wells are located on the coastal fringe between Suai in the west and Zumalai in the east, and up to 7km inland from the coastline. The wells will be sited within three Administrative Posts, Suai, Maucatar and Zumalai, in Covalima Municipality. The drilling program is designed to test three types of plays within the onshore acreage, maximizing the potential for a commercial discovery, namely: Pliocene-Pleistocene age Viqueque Formation within the syn-orogenic basinal section; “Lower Allochthon” (Permian-Eocene) succession; and Triassic-Jurassic age Babulu/Aitutu and Wai-Luli Formations beneath a regional metamorphic over thrust. Following a competitive tender, Eastern Drilling Services was awarded a contract for the provision of a drilling rig and associated services for this drilling campaign. Karau-1, the first well in the campaign, will be drilled to 1,080m depth, targeting an approximately 430 meters thick gross reservoir interval in the Viqueque Formation. The five-well drilling campaign marks the first onshore drilling in Timor-Leste since 1972, a significant achievement that we are looking forward to commence with the potential to bring substantial value to the project stakeholders.
