JSC KazMunaiGas Exploration Production (KMG EP) has announced the results of an exploratory appraisal well at the Rozhkovskoye field, located in the Fedorovsky block.

During testing of the lower formation of Tournaisian reservoir in the exploration well U-25, drilled in 2016, inflow of gas and condensate was obtained at the interval of 4,418-4,430 meters with an average flow rate of 111,000 m3/day and 245 m3/day respectively on 11 mm choke.

Taking into account that the tested formation is structurally below the currently known gas water contact, conditionally accepted following the results of the previously drilled exploration wells, hydrocarbon resources are expected to increase not only due to further exploration, but also due to update of the area of the remaining category ?1 resources.

Testing of upper, main gas-bearing formation of Tournaisian reservoir will continue after testing of the lower formation is completed.
