Lisah-1 is being drilled in the Bulu production sharing contract (PSC) in the offshore Java Sea, about 90km north of Surabaya, East Java, in water 60m
deep, managing director Bruce Wood said.
"AWE is encouraged by the presence of hydrocarbon shows at Lisah, but remains cautious with regard to their significance,” Wood said.
"The results of the wireline logs will define the forward path for the well."
