– Manas Petroleum Corp., Baar, Switzerland, finished the second of two wells that fulfill the 2009 commitments in its priority exploration areas in Kyrgyzstan.

Huday Nazar SPC-1 on the Soh license went to a TD of 2,213 m and penetrated a thick Jurassic coal and sandstone sequence in the deeper section. Mudlog gas shows and wireline log evaluation are under way.

Assessment of shallower hydrocarbon anomalies in the Paleogene section suggests they confirm the geological model but are not currently commercial. Data are being evaluated with seismic data to determine a future drilling location to gain commercial feasibility.

A potentially significant Jurassic oil-gas-condensate play is clearly present in the Soh permit in addition to the oil-dominated Paleogene play (see map, OGJ, Nov. 19, 2007, p. 34).

CJSC South Petroleum Co. is focusing on a 2010 well program that will include the drilling of deeper prospects delineated by the recent seismic acquisition.
