TNK-BP Performs Well Interventions at Sorochinskneft Fields

TNK-BP's Sorochinskneft oil and gas production unit performed well interventions on 7 wells in the Tokskoe field during May 2010 to equalize the injectivity profile, with an anticipated increase of around 14,000 tonnes of oil for 2010.

According to Andrey Mirgorodskiy, waterflood manager in Sorochinskneft's field development section, the main objective of these interventions is to achieve an annual oil output level of 10 million tonnes.

In 2009, Sorochinskneft produced around 9.2 million tonnes of oil, which was 3.9% above plan and 6.2% more than in 2008.
