BNG Operational update & March production numbers




The Board of Caspian Sunrise is pleased to announce New Well 153, the second of the planned infill wells on the MJF structure, has reached its Total Depth of 2,500 meters.




New Well 153 was spudded in mid-February 2020, and on 2 April 2020, reached its Total Depth.  Wireline logging has been completed and Baker Hughes are set to complete the final cementing. After approximately 7 days to allow the cement to fully dry we intend to perforate an interval to be determined by analysis of the logging data.


Our expectation is for a similar result to New Well 150, which commenced production in March 2020.


On the basis that New Well 153 meets our expectations the production from the shallow structures at BNG would be comfortably in excess of 2,000 bopd.


March 2020 oil production figures


The total number of barrels produced in March 2020, was 40,277 (February 2020, 38,626) at an average daily rate of 1,299 bopd (February 2020, 1,332).


During March the loss of production from Deep Well A5 was effectively replaced by less than four days production from New Well 150.




Clive Carver, executive Chairman said:


"Drilling shallow wells on the MJF structure is generally a straight forward matter, as has been the case with New Well 153.


We look forward to bringing the well into production in the next couple of weeks."
