OSL update on exploration, appraisal drilling

Oil Search Limited has conducted appraisal of the Barikewa 3 Well in Petroleum Retention License (PRL) 9 Forelands.

In its exploration and appraisal drilling update for June 2018, OSL says the objective is to constrain the resource in the field and assist in selecting the optimal commercialization pathway.

OSL says the Barikewa 3 appraisal well follows the successful Kimu 2 appraisal well in PRL 8 Forelands.

The Kimu 2 Well reached a total depth in late May 2018 and proved up an extension of the Kimu gas reservoir.
