Early production through the Bijell-1B well is currently approximately 3500 bbls/d. The parallel Bijell-2 well also revealed positive test results from the Jurassic structure. After reaching and testing its Triassic targets, this well will tied in to the EWT by the end of August 2014.
Drilling of Bijell-4 well is ongoing, while spud of Bijell-6 well is expected in March. Both wells are expected to be tied in to the EWT by the end of 2014. Following current ongoing geological assessment of the whole block, submission of the Field Development Plan is due by the end of April. An updated Total Original Oil In Place (OIIP) and reserve potential estimate of the block will be included in this plan.
