Eastern Europe-focused JKX Oil & Gas announced Thursday that work has begun on the hydrochloric acid treatment of three wells on its Koshebkhablskoye field in the Republic of Adygea, Russia.

JKX said the objective of the acid treatment program is to enhance well productivity by improving conditions in the near wellbore and the removal of residual drilling solids in the open-hole sections.

The first well in the program, well-25, had a side track completed on it in January and flowed during clean-up at a rate of 13 million cubic feet per day. Improved stable production rates should result from the current acid treatment, said JKX.

JKX Chief Executive Dr. Paul Davies commented in a statement:

"We are pleased to have the hydrochloric acidization program underway and look forward to having all three wells in production by mid-March."
