Otto Flows Gas from Kuze Arpaci-1 in Edirne, Turkey

Otto Flows Gas from Second Well - Kuzey Arpaci-1 Edirne, Western Turkey

Joint venture partners Otto Energy and Incremental Petroleum announced that the Kuzey Arpaci-1 well has tested at excellent flow rates from a tested section of only 5m in the lower reservoir.


  • Kuzey Arpaci-1 flowed dry gas at a rate of 1.15 MMscf/d over the interval 462.8m to 467.5m at a stabilized rate of 1.15 MMscfg/d through a 1/2 inch choke.
  • Another, shallower reservoir section is also present in this well and will be available for future production.
  • This is the second confirmed commercial flow rate from the Edirne discovery wells.
  • Following the shut in period additional perforations will be added and the well will be flowed again and prepared as a future production well.

    The rig will then move to test the Arpaci 1 well, which was drilled in January 2006, before the 3D seismic was available.

    The partners in the Edirne Gas project are Otto Energy with 35% and Joint Operators Incremental Petroleum (55%) and Petraco Energy (10%).
