The Arbuzovskoye well 101, the first of ten planned new production wells on the Arbuzovskoye oil field, has been successfully completed and brought into production at a stable rate of 310 bopd with less than 3pc water cut, it said.
Dennis Francis, Chief Executive Officer of PetroNeft Resources plc, commented: "We are delighted with the excellent production rate of 310 bopd from well 101. This is well above our target rate for these wells and confirms excellent continuity of the J1-1 reservoir from Arbuzovskaya No. 1 to well 101. We look forward to the additional Arbuzovskoye wells over the coming months as we increase our production profile and cash flows."
