Mixed Success for Max in Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan-focused Max Petroleum reported Tuesday that it had had mixed results at two appraisal wells in the Central Asian country.

Max said that while its BCHW-3 well in the eastern portion of the Baichonas West Field found insufficient hydrocarbons to be commercial, in the Uytas Field its UTS-16 well was more successful with electric logs indicating around 10 feet of net oil pay in the Cretaceous Aptian reservoir over a 108-foot interval. The firm added that the Cretaceous Aptain reservoir quality was "excellent".

The Zhanros ZJ-20 rig used to drill the BCHW-3 well will now move to drill the ESKN-2 well, which will be the first appraisal well to be drilled at the nearby Erskene North Field. The Zhanros mobile truck-mounted rig used to drill UTS-16 will now be used to drill the UTS-15 appraisal well.
