A new oil reservoir in Frasnian deposits was discovered in the Vostochno-Radovsky license area of NGDU Sorochinskneft (incorporated into TNK-BP).
Production of Frasnian oil will be started after completion of drilling and case-hole testing works.
NGDU Sorochinskneft is conducting extensive exploration works. Construction of two exploration wells is currently under way in the Vostochno-Radovsky and Vostochno-Tolkaevsky license areas. Three-dimensional seismic exploration is started in the Kichkassky license area, which will complete last year’s exploration works for fulfillment of license commitments and exploration of the Alisovsky license area.
