Bass Oil begins Bunian 5 well construction at Tangai-Sukananti, drilling soon to follow

The drilling program is expected to increase both the oil production capacity and developed reserves of the project.
Bass’ gross 2P reserves from its 55% Tangai holding amounts to 1.28 million barrels of oil

Bass Oil Ltd (ASX:BAS) has started construction of the Bunian 5 drilling site at its onshore Tangai Sukananti joint venture project in Indonesia’s South Sumatra region.

The well will be drilled vertically at the same drilling pad from which the Bunian 4 directional well was drilled, reducing costs and saving time for the project.

Bass has a 55% interest in Tangai which was producing an average of 600 barrels of oil per day from 4 wells as of last year.

Bass anticipates the drilling program to increase both the production capacity and developed reserves of the Tangai project.
