In December 2017, it drilled its first exploration well into 2,014m depth and found 34.8m net oil pay. The oil production of the well was tested up to 3,750 (exploration) for two additional PSCs – 04/20 and 17/08. barrels per day. SK Innovation plans to drill follow-up appraisal wells to assess reserves and commerciality of the project. SK Innovation currently holds 80% working interest in the block, and 20% is held by CNOOC, the Chinese stated-owned company specializing in offshore oil and gas. A spokesperson from SK Innovation said, “SK Innovation was the first private company in Korea to step into the upstream oil and gas business, and the company’s focus on technical expertise ever since its beginning in 1983 led to this significant milestone. Once the commerciality of the project in PRMB is secured, SK Innovation will use it as a platform of growth into other areas in the South China Sea” January to February 2018 31
