The firm also reported the commencement of drilling operations from Pad 23b following the spud of its first multi-stage fractured horizontal well on the Pottymsko-Inginsky license block. This well, designated No.234, is being drilled under a technical partnership agreement that Ruspetro has with French oilfield services firm Schlumberger.
Ruspetro CEO John Conlin commented in a company statement:
"We are pleased to have successfully extended our Vostochno-Inginsky licence. Additionally, the commencement of drilling at our first multistage fractured horizontal well marks another important milestone in our technical partnership with Schlumberger."
