Big Sky Energy Begins Production at Morskoe Block, Kazakhstan

Big Sky Energy has commenced production from its Morskoe Block, which is located on the northeast shore of the Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan.

The Company has tied-in Wells No. 10, and No. 12 to an oil battery it has constructed at the pad from which three wells were drilled earlier this year.

Currently the Company is trucking a total of 5,400 bopd of clean oil from these two wells to an off-loading point situated in Prorva oil field 30km away. The third well, No. 11 will be brought on-line in one week when its completion and tie-in has been completed.

"We will monitor reservoir performance at these production levels in order to assess optimum economic oil recovery," stated Mr. Al Sehsuvaroglu, the Company's President and CEO. "We believe that the three wells we are putting on production will adequately exploit the oil pool from which they are producing. We have plans to work over existing wells and drill additional wells to exploit the deeper reservoirs in the Morskoe Block. Moreover I would like to announce that ZapKazNedra, a department of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has approved the Morskoe Pilot Development Program, allowing us to start implementing the initial stages toward full field development."
