Kazakhstan: Condor appraises Shoba Triassic oil find

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 25
– Condor Petroleum Inc., Calgary, reported an unchoked flow of 1,080 b/d of 35° gravity oil at the Shoba-2 appraisal well to the company’s March 2011 Shoba discovery on the Zharkamys West block in the North Caspian basin in Kazakhstan.

Flow through a 10-mm choke stabilized at 530 b/d of 500 psi of surface pressure on a 2-day test. An 8-m oil zone interval in the Triassic Horn formation was perforated. Oil is the same gravity as that recovered from Shoba-1. No water was produced at either well.

The fluid and flow data information acquired during the initial flow period will be used to aid in the design of a long-term production test expected to be performed in the third quarter of 2011.

Condor owns 100% working interest in the 645,000-acre block.
