Tatneft Begins Producing Crude in Syria

On April 7, a joint enterprise between Tatneft and Syria's Al-bu Kamal Petroleum Company began producing oil at the South Kishma field in Syria, the Tatneft press office reported in a news release. The field is estimated to have 4.9 million tons of recoverable reserves.
Production is under way at the South Kishma-1 well using fountain flow. The well is producing a flow of 80 tons of light crude (470 API) per day. Post-hydro fracturing development is in operation at the South Kishma-101 well and development is expected soon after drilling the South Kishma-2 well.
The crude is being delivered to the Kishma separating station 17 kilometers from the field. Tatnfet was the first Russian company to win a bid in Syria when it won an e&p tender and signed a PSA contract in 2003.
