Tethys Petroleum Limited: Kazakhstan Gas Well Testing Programme Results

BOZOI, KAZAKHSTAN -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Tethys Petroleum Limited ("Tethys") (TSX:TPL)(LSE:TPL) is pleased to announce the test results from AKK17, AKK18, AKK19 and AKK20; the first four shallow gas exploration wells of its 2014 programme.

The AKK17, AKK18, AKK19 and AKK20 wells tested at an aggregate rate of approximately 650 Mcm/d (23MMcf/d) from the Tasaran horizon.

It is planned that these wells will be incorporated under the Akkulka Production Contract by Q1 2015 whereupon they will be tied-in to the existing gas production infrastructure and placed on permanent production. Additionally, the four previously drilled and tested wells, AKK05, AKK14, AKK15 and AKK16 will also be brought on stream in Q1 2015 to target an initial total production rate of 800 - 1,000 Mcm/d (28 MMcf/d - 35 MMcf/d).

Additional wells are planned to be drilled in the proximity of the new discoveries as well as the existing wells, such as AKK15 and AKK16, next year and subsequent pipelines will be laid and tied into the optimised infrastructure in order to maintain production levels.

In support of this shallow gas programme, work has already commenced on the gas dehydration project and on the pipelines required to tie-in these additional wells to the existing gas production infrastructure. Both projects are on schedule for completion by year-end.

Graham Wall, Chief Operating Officer of Tethys commented, "We are very pleased with the continued success of the Kazakh shallow gas programme. These latest results (some of which were tubing constrained) keep us on track to achieve a near three fold increase in gas production by the beginning of 2015."

Tethys is focused on oil and gas exploration and production activities in Central Asia and the Caspian Region. This highly prolific oil and gas area is rapidly developing and Tethys believes that significant potential exists in both exploration and in discovered deposits.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
