Salamander launches Thai well

UK-based Salamander Energy has started drilling at an appraisal site in North-east Thailand, a project that it expects to complete in 45 days on a dry-hole basis. The Dao Ruang-2 appraisal well will target a fracture network in the Pha Nok Khao Permian carbonate reservoir which was mapped by the company’s recently acquired high resolution 3D seismic.
