TransGlobe Energy Completes An Nagyah #19 as a Producer

TransGlobe Energy has drilled another successful development well on Block S-1 in the Republic of Yemen.

An Nagyah #19, which commenced drilling on January 9, 2006, reached a total depth of 1,705 meters and was completed as a producing oil well after flowing at a stabilized rate of 3,226 barrels of light (43 degree API) oil per day and 1.6 million cubic feet of gas per day at a flowing pressure of 500 psi on a 48/64 inch choke.

The An Nagyah #19 well encountered the Lam A sandstone reservoir and was completed in a 266 meter horizontal section. The well is now being pipeline connected to the An Nagyah facilities.

The drilling rig is preparing to move to the next drilling location at An Nagyah #20. The An Nagyah #20 well is planned as an 850 meter horizontal well in the Lam A sandstone of the An Nagyah field, between vertical producers An Nagyah #5 and An Nagyah #7 in the western portion of the field.
