TNK-BP: Two Appraisal Wells Flow Commercial Oil

Following successful hydraulic fracturing of the reservoir and testing of appraisal wells No.66 at the Severo-Khokhryakovskoe field and No.60 at the Bakhilovskoe field, OJSC Varyoganneftegaz has begun producing oil in commercial volumes.

The oil is currently being transported by tankers along a winter road. The good flow-rates from these appraisal wells will enable Varyoganneftegaz to efficiently implement its drilling program and build new cluster sites.
