Hadson discovers gas

JAKARTA (JP): Hadson Bentu Limited, one of Pertamina's production sharing contractors, has discovered gas and condensate reserves in Riau.

Pertamina, the state-owned oil company, announced here Saturday that the gas and condensate were discovered in the Seng- I field in the Bentu bloc, around 15 kilometers southeast of Pekanbaru, the capital of the Riau province.

The field produces around 17 million cubic feet of natural gas and 371 barrels of condensate per day, the state oil firm said.

The new well was the third drilled by Hadson since it signed its contract with Pertamina in 1991.(hen)
