KrisEnergy has drilled the well using Randolph Yost jack-up rig, which is owned by Shelf Drilling.

Located about 8km east-southeast of the Dambus-1 gas indication well, the Tayum-1 well was drilled to a total depth of 11,095ft measured depth (MD) or -8,410ft total vertical depth subsea.

As per preliminary estimates, the well encountered approximately 49 vertical feet of net gas pay from multiple sandstone intervals between 2,377ft MD and 7,180ft MD within the Miocene to Pliocene section.

Apart from two gas samples from the Miocene to Pliocene section, the company also recovered two gas samples from shaly-sand gas pay intervals between 6,647ft MD and 6,660ft MD and 7,366ft MD to 7,402ft MD.

KrisEnergy said that the Tayum-1 well has been plugged and abandoned as a gas discovery and is currently evaluating the results together with the data from two earlier gas discoveries, Dambus and Mangkok.
