Kazakhstan nonstate gas field flow starts

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 27 -- Tethys Petroleum Ltd., Guernsey, Channel Islands, UK, started gas production on Dec. 19 from Kyzyloi gas field in Kazakhstan northwest of the Aral Sea.

Average contract quantity for the first two months is 21.2 MMcfd from six wells in what Tethys called the country's first nonstate, dedicated dry gas development. Gas flows via a 35-mile pipeline to the Bukhara-Urals export trunk line. Gas buyer is Kazakhstani petrochemical firm Kemikal LLP.

Meanwhile, Tethys has discovered more gas in the Akkulka exploration area that surrounds Kyzyloi field, having flow-tested more than 40 MMcfd from seven shallow exploration wells. Incorporating these wells into the greater Kyzyloi development could boost production to more than 44 MMcfd by late 2008.

The AKK13 exploration well is drilling, AKK14 is to evaluate two shallow stratigraphic gas intervals on a separate prospect, and deep Triassic and Jurassic targets have been identified in the Akkulka and Kul-Bas areas that might be reached by reentering old wells.
