">CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 6, 2013) - Condor Petroleum Inc. ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX:CPI) is pleased to provide an update on the Kiyaktysai ("KN‐E‐201") oil discovery at the Zharkamys West 1 Territory ("Zharkamys") in Kazakhstan.
KN‐E‐201 was drilled to a total depth of 1,870 meters. As previously announced, 58 meters of net hydrocarbon pay was identified from wireline logs down to 1,355 meters. An additional 16 meter net reservoir section was penetrated where oil was observed at surface, but no wireline log data obtained. Below these intervals, wireline logs identified 86 meters of net over‐pressured reservoir with residual hydrocarbons. The residual hydrocarbons are indicative of incremental up‐dip oil potential within the Kiyaktysai structure.
Multiple hydrocarbon intervals are planned to be completed and put on individual 90 day production tests starting in Q2 2013, once regulatory approvals are obtained. Drilling the first appraisal well, KN‐E‐202, is also targeted to begin in Q2 2013. The appraisal well will help further define the potential size of the Kiyaktysai discovery.
The main pre‐drill geologic risk for KN‐E‐201 was the presence of reservoir‐quality sands. This well penetrated a total of 160 meters of net reservoir sands, assuming an 8 percent porosity cut‐off. The discovery validates Condor's unique geologic model and 3D seismic interpretation for this play‐type, successfully yielding producible hydrocarbons. Six similar prospects are being matured to drill‐ready status.
