This is a production single bore horizontal well with the measured depth of 3.5 km. The horizontal section of the well is 1.2 km. The initial well flow reached 2.4 thousand t of oil/d. As a result, the daily oil production at the field increased to 16.8 thousand t.
As of 31 January, the company started to drill an injection well. Further execution of the drilling program at the Phase 2 of the field's development will allow to stabilise production at the designed plateau of 6 million t on an annualised basis.
