In the Urga field, 1 deep appraisal and production well was drilled, sidetracking was completed at 2 wells, workover was completed at 5 wells, 2 wells were equipped and a shift camp was built.
The actual volume of natural gas production since the start of the project amounted to 3.95 billion cubic meters, gas condensate – 122,600 tonnes.
Currently, work is underway to drill 1 prospecting well at the Akchalak investment block (Jalymbet area), which is expected to be completed at the end of December this year.
In order to increase natural gas production, the Natural Gas-Stream JV developed a plan of practical measures providing for the drilling of 2 wells and sidetracks in 6 wells, overhaul in 11 wells, the implementation of which will increase the daily natural gas production from 3.66 million cubic meters .m up to 4.0 million cubic meters.
In 2020, investments are expected to be disbursed in the amount of US$54.1 million.
