Roxi, the Central Asian oil and gas company with a focus on Kazakhstan, has given an update about the market with news of the deep discovery at its flagship BNG asset.

The BNG Contract Area is located in the west of Kazakhstan 40 kilometres southeast of Tengiz on the edge of the Mangistau Oblast, covering an area of 1,561 square kilometres of which 1,376 square kilometres has 3D seismic coverage acquired in 2009 and 2010.

Roxi has a 58.41 per cent interest in the BNG Contract Area.

Deep Well A5

On 19 August 2014 Roxi announced that the thickness of the gross oil-bearing interval commencing at 4,332 meters was at least 51 meters and that Roxi would continue to determine the full extent of the interval by drilling and logging rather than taking additional core samples.

Roxi is pleased to announce that based on additional drilling and mud logging conducted since 19 August 2014 the
thickness of the gross oil-bearing interval is now at least 105 meters, between 4,332 meters and 4,437 meters.

For safety reasons related to different pressure and temperature conditions at lower depths Roxi has decided to complete the well at 4,442 meters. Once the well has been completed after running and setting 114 mm liner flow testing will commence.

Roxi's next deep well, A6, is planned to allow targeting of levels below 4,437 meters. 
 

Further announcements on the progress of A5 will be made in due course.

Clive Carver, Chairman commented "The 105 meters gross interval is an excellent outcome.  How far further the interval extends will be for another time to determine. More than ever we look forward to the results of the flow test."
