Salamander Energy Provides Sinphuhorm field Update

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/6/2008, Location: Asia

South Phu Horm (SPH-1) Appraisal Well: The SPH-1 well was drilled outside of the current production licences, EU1 and E5N, with the objective of appraising the possible upside of the field extending south into the surrounding L15/43 concession where Salamander holds a higher equity interest. SPH-1 was drilled to a total depth of approximately 2,660 metres sub-sea and encountered gas shows in both the Hua Hin Lat and Pha Nok Khao (PNK) formations. A full suite of logs were run and an open hole test conducted across the PNK primary target interval. The SPH-1 well tested gas at rates that would not support commercial production from this drilling location. The drilling, log and test data suggest the fracturing necessary to provide effective deliverability in the PNK carbonates is not present at the SPH-1 location and the well has been suspended whilst a forward programme is discussed with the L15/43 partners.

Sinphuhorm Field (Production Licences EU1/E5N)
The Sinphuhorm gas field continues to produce above expectations at an average of 86.5 MMscfd year to date, with the gas achieving an average price of approximately $7.30 per Mcf, ($5.96 per Mcf average price for 2007). The Daily Contract Quantity was increased in March 2008 to 92 MMscfd, and the field has demonstrated an ability to meet this expanded rate without any issues.

There is strong regional demand for gas in Northeast Thailand and the field partners firmly believe that there is capacity from the existing development to meet the increase in demand, and that the field is capable of producing in excess of 100 MMscfd, through the existing wells and infrastructure.
