Commencement of the Appraisal Campaign at the Stepnoy Leopard Fields
Nostrum Oil & Gas PLC (LSE: NOG) ("Nostrum", or the "Company" and together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"), an independent oil and gas company engaging in the production, development and exploration of oil and gas in the pre-Caspian Basin, today is pleased to announce the commencement of the appraisal campaign at the Stepnoy Leopard fields as part of its previously announced appraisal programme.
The objective of the appraisal campaign is to re-enter two existing wells in the Teplovskoye reservoir to take representative fluid samples, and conduct Extended Well Testing. The data will help to confirm the commercial potential and support the future decision related to the selection of a phased field development concept in 2024.
The Stepnoy Leopard fields, located about 100 km west of our world-class full-process infrastructure, are potentially an attractive Nostrum-operated upstream tie-back project that could deliver material reserves in addition to the Group's depleting resource base in the Chinarevskoye field.
