Max Petroleum Wraps Up Ops in Borkyldakty Field

Max Petroleum has completed drilling the BOR-2 appraisal well in the Borkyldakty Field in Block E, reaching a total depth of 1,760 meters. The productive Triassic reservoirs found in the BOR-1 discovery well are present and well developed in BOR-2, but were encountered structurally lower than expected, at or below their respective oil-water contacts. As a result, the BOR-2 well will be completed as a water injection well to be used in the future development of the Field. The Sun Drilling ZJ-30 rigwill now move to the KZI-1 exploration well on the Kyzylzhar 1 Prospect in Block E, followed by a second appraisal well in the Borkyldakty Field.
