CNPC producing oil from Afghan block

China National Petroleum Corp. is producing 1,950 b/d of oil from Angot field in northern Afghanistan on one of three production-sharing blocks it received in the country’s licensing round last year (OGJ Online, Jan. 16, 2012).

The oil is being trucked to Turkmenistan. CNPC is reported to have agreed to build a refinery in Afghanistan.

Angot is a 1967 discovery that has produced oil in the past. It’s on the Kashkari block in the Amu Darya basin. CNPC’s other blocks, Bazarkhami and Zamarudsay, are nearby.

A second licensing round is to close at the end of this month.
