Long-Awaited Drilling in Sumatra Commences
Source: Streetwise Reports
August 4, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) A Calgary-based oil and gas exploration and production company announced that drilling has begun on its Sumatran property.
Pan Orient Energy Corp. (POE:TSX.V) announced on July 31 that drilling commenced on the AYU-1X exploration well at East Jabung on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. Pan Orient has a production sharing contract (PSC) with Talisman Energy, a subsidiary of Repsol, to explore the property. Pan Orient holds a 49% non-operated interest and Talisman is the operator with a 51% interest.
Pan Orient stated that it expects the well to reach total depth around Aug. 31.
In the company's presentation for the June 13 Annual and Special Meeting, Pan Orient stated that the project has the "best fiscal terms in Indonesia with a 65%/35% after tax & cost recovery split in favor of the GOI [Government of Indonesia] for oil (60%/40% for natural gas) after POE recovers its costs," and it is "carried up to a well cost cap of the first $10MMusd on the first high impact exploration well (AYU-1X)."
Chen Lin, author of What is Chen Buying? What is Chen Selling? newsletter, wrote on July 31 that he sees this as an "exciting and potentially once-a-lifetime opportunity. . .I like the risk-reward." Lin explained that in Sumatra, "gas commands a premium because of the undersea pipeline to Singapore, where it carries one of the highest natural gas prices in the world. It is very reasonable to assign $1-2/mcf for the gas resource because the gas price there is close to double digits. Given 6:1 gas to oil ratio, it is about the $10/BOE."
Pan Orient also has operations in Thailand and Western Canada.
