Jupiter Spuds Kazakh Well

Jupiter Energy reported that the J-51 Exploration Well, located in the Mangistau basin in south-west Kazakhstan, spudded on July 30, 2011.

The surface location for J-51 is 2 km South West from J-50 and 1.7 km North West from J-52. J-51 is scheduled to take ~60 days to reach target depth of approximately 3200 meters and has been designed to evaluate the prospectivity of the primary Triassic and secondary Jurassic targets within the structure known as Akkar East.

The casing design is configured to allow the well to be used as a future production well.
