“On March 17, the company received industrial gas inflow from well No. 2 of the Talimarjhan field, which is part of the Kultak-Kamashinsky investment block, in the amount of 200,000 cubic meters per day. This figure was achieved after carrying out the relevant work and cleaning the bottom zone of the well," Epsilon reported.
Experts of the American company state that after the formation treatment, the flow rate of well No. 2 will increase to more than 350,000 cubic meters per day.
