Malaysia's first well


Grand Old Lady is the first oil well drilled in Malaysia. She was completed in 1910 and produced a total of 600,000 barrels at a 5 barrels per day rate. She was a mere vertical well (nowadays wells can be drilled directionally up to 100 deg!) and I have yet to receive confirmation about the depth of the well and method of completion. Would be interesting to find out!
