Energi Mega Reports Gas Flow Incident
Oil and gas company PT Energi Mega Persada Tbk (ENRG) said in a filing to the Indonesian Stock Exchange that there was a gas flow incident occurred at the company’s oil and gas field Bentu PSC, Segat-2, in Riau, Sumatra.
The incident occurred during well work-over activities, which has led to an evacuation of the non-essential site workers.
Nevertheless, there were no casualties or property damage during the incident. It added the incident as no impact on the Bentu and Korinci Baru PSCs. The original Segat-2 discovery well was drilled back in 1995.
