During the drilling process about 50 meters of core was sampled and a full spectrum of geophysical and technical surveys were carried out by Schlumberger. As a result of the core sampling and surveys the Company has discovered several potential productive intervals within Triassic formations.
Toleush Tolmakov, general director of Emir Oil, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BMB Munai, Inc., said, 'We continue to steadily increase our wellstock through drilling of new wells and drilling-in of existing wells. We plan to concentrate efforts on increasing production through optimizing production rates and implementing a program aimed at intensification of production.'
Perforation of newly-discovered intervals, testing and testing production on the Aksaz-4 well will commence when the drilling rig has been dismantled.
