SINGAPORE -- Interra Resources (Interra) informed its shareholders that its jointly controlled entity, Goldpetrol Joint Operating Company (Goldpetrol), has commenced drilling development well YNG 3269 in the Yenangyaung oil field in Myanmar.
Interra has a 60% interest in the Improved Petroleum Recovery Contract of the Yenangyaung field and also owns 60% of Goldpetrol which is the operator of the field. YNG 3269 is being drilled using hired ZJ 750 rig. Interra’s share of the cost of drilling is funded from existing funds on hand.
YNG 3269 is drilled in South-Central Yenangyaung field as an infill well to five relatively new wells which have been completed as oil producers since July 2013. YNG 3269 will be drilled to a targeted depth of 4,200 ft with the primary objective of accelerating production from the oil reservoirs that produce from wells in this fault block.
