Malaysia's Reach Energy has announced positive results of testing of the exploration well K-15, in its Emir Oil Concession, onshore Kazakhstan. As part of Emir-Oil exploration commitment, the K-15 vertical exploration well spudded on 31 December 2018 and reached TD on 3920 m. The well penetrated the target Mid-Triassic carbonate reservoirs, reaching a total depth of 3802 m. The well was perforated in November 2019 after extensive study of the well data and obtaining necessary approvals for perforation of the well.

This well identified highly graded hydrocarbon trap near the west flank of Kariman Field and allowed to understand of the geological structure in whole. The K-15 well confirms larger extent of the hydrocarbon resource exploited in the Kariman geological structure. It has been safely and successfully executed as budgeted.

The K-15 well encountered oil intervals in the Mid-Triassic (T2B) based on the openhole log interpretation. It was then perforated and currently is cleaning up, oil inflow is obtained, wellhead samples are taken and sent for analysis. This is discovery and it will contribute significantly to REB’s reserves. K-15 is in extended well testing now to further ascertain the commercial viability of this well.

There are two intervals that will be perforated in the future once the extended well test of mentioned interval is finished. If they prove to flow oil, this would further enhance the value of this well in terms of commerciality and contribution to overall reserves and, respectively, production.

Ir. Shahul Hamid Bin Mohd Ismail, CEO of REB commented:

'Another good success in our exploration efforts in our large Emir Oil Concession Block covering some 850 square kilometers. The K-15 well, together with the K-16 well, with close proximity to the Kariman Field would allow for a seamless integration into commercial production once we obtain Kariman Mining Allotment extension based on the positive results of these 2 wells.'
