HOUSTON, Oct. 19 -- Centric Energy Corp., London, has drilled to 3,170 m enroute to the first objective horizon at 3,250 m at the South Temryuk-1 exploration well in the Azov-Kuban basin in southwestern Russia near the Azov Sea.

The first objective is to be cored, and a second objective is expected at 3,760 m in December.

On the Protoka license 120 km northeast, Centric will soon spud the Protoka-1 exploration well on a fault-bound structural closure identified on seismic.

The objectives in both wells are in the Miocene Chokrak formation, with oil expected to have been sourced by the Miocene-Oligocene Maykop series.
