Drilling Postponed By PTTEP, As the Production Fell Short Of Expectations

The drilling was PTTEP’s plan of action, covering a capital expenditure of US$5.51 billion. According to the President and chief executive – Tevin Vonvanich, has stated that this delay is necessary, as the production in the fields failed to meet the expectations.

Despite the delay, the financial performance will remain stable, as the motive is simply to maintain the production, rather than increasing the capacity. Thus, it will have minimum impact on the financial resources.
