Petrogrand AB: Spudding of well in Yuzhno-Nazinskaya (N-232)

We have today spudded our well N-232 in Nizhnepaninsky license area. An important part of the drilling preparations has been to get all the necessary approvals in place. I would like to take the opportunity to thank our personnel who have done a very good job with this, which has enabled us to keep our schedule.  The planned depth of the well is 2800 m. For this, the Uralmash 3D- 76 drilling unit will be used. This machine allows for drilling wells up to 5000 m deep.  Our targets are Cretaceous, Jurassic, Weathering mantle and Palaeozoic deposits. We plan to do extensive testing during and after drilling and the estimated drilling time is 60-70 days, excluding testing. Spudding of our other two wells (one in Nizhnepaninsky and one in Muromsky-2) will begin shortly.
