Rosneft-Stroytransgaz Limited (RN-STG), controlled by Rosneft and Stroytransgaz, is working jointly with Sonatrach, Algeria’s national oil company, to begin reservoir delineation at three earlier discovered deposits within Block 245 South in Algeria. The three deposits are East Takuazet, West Takuazet and North Tisselit.
The aim of reservoir delineation is to specify the development programme for these deposits. It involves 3D seismic survey (covering an area of 386 square kilometres), the drilling of three new wells, two horizontal sidetracks and a horizontal offshoot.
To date, all of the planned seismic survey work has been completed, sites have been prepared for drilling and drilling of the first well has begun.
Work is scheduled for completion in September 2012.
