Dennis Francis, Chief Executive Officer of PetroNeft Resources plc, commented:

“2015 was a busy year for PetroNeft, during which the company carried out an extensive drilling programme, in partnership with Oil India, across Licence 61. We have gained significant experience in horizontal drilling, deepened our understanding of the Licence and have identified additional upside at Sibkrayevskoye and South Arbuzovskoye.

After 3 weeks of production the A-214 horizontal well at South Arbuzovskoye is still producing over 850 bopd and the pressure decline is very slow. In the near term we look forward to the A-215 horizontal well results at South Arbuzovskoye and the commencement of drilling on the S-374 delineation well at Sibkrayevskoye.”
