The WBEXT-10B well, drilled down dip in the WBEXT-3C/3D/3D fault block, was completed as a production well after encountering an oil column in the igneous reservoir, and after a week of testing is flowing at rates of between 400 and 450 bopd with 2-3 per cent water cut.

The WBEXT-3F appraisal well is being drilled to determine the extent of the oil column in the WBEXT-3ST1 fault block.

During initial testing of the WBEXT-10B well, the Thailand concessions are flowing over 4,500 bopd (gross) with discussions ongoing to determine the ultimate flow rates in line with previous decisions to reduce the rates of new wells in order to increase ultimate recovery per well.

Equity holders in the L33/43 and L44/43 concessions are Carnarvon Petroleum 20 per cent, Eco Orient Energy (operator) 60 per cent and Loyz Energy 20 per cent.
