East Jabung PSC (Pan Orient 49% & Non Operator)

The Operator of the East Jabung Production Sharing Contract (“PSC”), Repsol (Indonesia), after consultations with the winning bid rig contractor, now advises of a one month delay for the Anggun 1X exploration well related mainly to the extra piles required to support the rig substructure and mud tanks. It is now expected that the approximate date for mobilization is in early September with drilling to commence 30 to 40 days after the start of mobilization.
