On December 11, 2020, an official ceremony of commissioning two wells at the Vostochny Urikhtau field was held in the Aktobe region. The event was attended by Chairman of the Board of JSC NC KazMunayGas Alik Aidarbayev, first Deputy Governor of Aktobe region Nurzhaugan Kalauov, Deputy Chairman of the Board for exploration and production of JSC NC "KazMunayGas" Zhakyp Marabayev and General Director of Urikhtau operating Amangeldy Taspikhov. During the field survey, the delegation members visited the shift camp, the WU-1 well and the booster pumping station.
It should be noted that the decision of the investment Committee of JSC NC KazMunayGas in May 2020 approved the implementation of the first phase of the Urikhtau project. As part of this phase, two wells from the Vostochny Urikhtau field and five wells from the Tsentralny Urikhtau field are expected to be commissioned in December 2021.
With the successful completion of the first phase and favourable economic conditions, the possibility of implementing the second phase will be considered, which involves the operation of 58 wells of the Urikhtau group of fields, as well as the construction of a number of production facilities.
"Given that the field's recoverable reserves amount to about 12 million tons of oil and more than 40 billion cubic meters of gas, I am confident that Urikhtau will take its rightful place in the portfolio of assets of KazMunayGas," said KMG head Alik Aidarbayev.
The Urikhtau group of fields is located in the Mugalzhar district of Aktobe region and includes the Central Urikhtau, Eastern Urikhtau and southern Urikhtau fields.
