Big Sky Energy's subsidiary KoZhaN LLP has commenced drilling Well DLT-33 in its Dauletaly Block, located on the north shore of the Caspian Sea in western Kazakhstan.

The well will be drilled to an approximate depth of 800m to test the Upper Jurassic sand formation in the Dauletaly Block. This new structure is located approximately 100m NW of Well DLT-G1, which was drilled in 1980 to a depth of 1,175 m into a prominent salt diapir. Historical well log analysis of G1 shows oil saturation in three intervals from 663 to 763 m.

"This is the first Dauletaly exploration well we are undertaking in the Upper Jurassic formation, which was identified with our 106 km 2D seismic shoot, conducted earlier in 2005," stated Mr. Al Sehsuvaroglu, the Company's CEO and President. "Based on the success of this location, we will follow up with additional exploration wells in this block."
