HOUSTON, Sept. 8
– Tethys Petroleum Ltd. of the UK killed its East Komsomolsk well KOM200 in Tajikistan after a gas blowout in the shallow part of the well.

The gas influx is thought to have come from a fracture tapping into the deeper potential gas reservoir, one of the well’s targets. After killing the well, Tethys has cemented casing and is preparing to drill ahead. It gave no depths.

Meanwhile, the East Olimtoi EOL09 exploration well is drilling ahead at 9,127 ft in the Neogene sequence. The well is being drilled in the southeast part of the Bokhtar PSC area, south of Kulob and just north of the Panj River.
