ExxonMobil provided an update on its positive results at the Muruk project in the Papua New Guinea (PNG) North Highlands. The Muruk-1 sidetrack 3 well flowed natural gas at a rate of 16 MMscf/D, which was constrained by production test facilities that limited tests to short flow and buildup periods. The test confirms Muruk as a potentially significant discovery close to the company’s existing PNG LNG (liquefied natural gas) development. Oil Search is the operator of the Muruk wells with a 37.5% interest. ExxonMobil (42.5%) and Santos (20%) are the other interest holders.
