Woodside has made a third discovery of gas at the Pyi Thit-1 exploration well in the Southern Rakhine Basin, located offshore Myanmar.
The well in Block A-6 hit a gross gas column of around 65 metre, with net gas pay interval of 36 metres within the primary target sandstone reservoir.
Woodside CEO Peter Coleman said the Pyi Thit-1 discovery was another success in an underexplored region.
“This result builds on our understanding of the potential resources in the Southern Rakhine Basin and will further inform our consideration of development options,” he said.
The Pyi Thit-1 well was drilled to a total depth of 4,570 metres. Following drilling, wireline logging was conducted and confirmed the presence of a gas column through pressure measurements and gas sampling.
This discovery at Pyi Thit-1 follows previous finds at the Shwe Yee Htun-1 well in Block A-6 and the Thalin-1A well in Block AD-7 this year.
Woodside Energy (Myanmar) holds a 40 per cent stake in Block A-6 and is the joint operator of the block and operator of the Pyi Thit-1 well. MPRL E&P Pte has a 20 per cent interest, is joint operator of Block A-6. Total E&P Myanmar holds the remaining 40 per cent interest in the block
