Gulf Keystone Pronides GKS-3 Well Update

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/24/2005, Location: Africa

Gulf Keystone announced a non-commercial well test on its GKS-3 appraisal well on Block 126A in Algeria. The well was drilled to 3,981 metres and tested but failed to produce hydrocarbons from the fractured limestone reservoir section. Because of the complexity of the fractured carbonate reservoir, the company and its advisors had always assumed 50% drilling success rates.

Consequently, these well results fit with previous economic and risk modelling and expectations, and the company does not perceive any negative economic impact on the reserves of the GKS field. Indeed, Gulf Keystone is optimistic about the GKS field which recently tested the discovery well GKS-2 at 4,586 barrels of oil per day and 4.61 million cubic feet of gas per day.

The company will now move the rig and equipment to the GRJ field located in the southeast of Block 126A to await the completion of the drilling of the GRJ-2 well and to test both the GRJ-1 and GRJ-2 wells.

Todd Kozel, CEO of Gulf Keystone Petroleum, said: 'While this GKS-3 result is disappointing, we have begun the process of applying for a production licence for the GKS field following the successful testing of the GKS-2 well. The company will now be focusing on both moving the GKS structure into commercial production and drilling the GRJ-2 well and testing the GRJ-1 well.
