Drilling Programme

The horizontal well programme being implemented is moving the Group up a very steep learning curve with regard to the future development of our assets. New technology implementation has been aggressive, aided by risk-based decision making and extensive scenario-planning.

The focus is now on appraising the wider license area with a mixture of vertical and horizontal appraisal wells, designed to mature a portfolio of horizontal development wells to be drilled in 2017. This development programme is expected to underpin the next significant step up in production and will see the introduction of more technological advances, where possible supplied by Russian entities.
