Pan Orient Energy Corp said the estimated commencement of drilling of the AYU-1X exploration well has been delayed from late April to late Q2 2017. This delay has been due to the implementation of extraordinary measures that were required to mitigate the extremely wet conditions caused by continuous rainfall with some days recording as much as 7.6 centimeters of precipitation. The AYU-1X exploration well is part of the East Jabung Production Sharing Contract (PSC). Pan Orient holds 49% interest in Jabung PSC, located in South Sumatera.
