Pan Orient Energy Corp., holding 49% interest in East Jabung PSC, reported that AYU-1X exploration well reached a total depth of 1,140 meters within the granitic basement on August 21 and has now been logged and pressure/fluid samples have been collected. Preliminary interpretation of the wireline logs, supported by pressure data and oil samples, indicates approximately 5.5 meters of high porosity net oil pay at the top of good quality reservoir in the Batu Raja limestone. Significant indications of hydrocarbons in the form of oil shows and high gas readings in well-developed sands of Gumai age were also found. Additional drilling will be required to establish the commerciality of the Ayu, Elok and Anggun structural complex.
