In West Bakr a K-45 good was a second South K-field good this year, targeting a categorical Asl A silt in a crestal position in South K-field. The good was drilled to a sum abyss of 5,831 feet and encountered a categorical Asl A silt approximately 66 feet structurally aloft than a K-46 good and is structurally a top good in South K-field Asl A B pools. The K-45 good encountered an internally estimated 195 feet of net oil compensate comprising 120 feet of net oil compensate in a Asl A pool (A1, A2 and A3) and 75 feet of net oil compensate in a Asl B pool. The K-45 good was finished during May in a Asl B arrangement and is now producing during a rate of 380 Bopd.

In West Gharib a Arta 54 good was a second good drilled this year in a range area between a Arta pool and a offsetting NWG growth franchise #3.  Arta 54 was drilled to a sum abyss of 3,711 feet and encountered approximately 128 feet of Nukhul/Red Bed arrangement with an internally estimated 24.5 feet of net oil pay.  The good was finished and placed on prolongation during a pre-frac rate of 60+ Bopd.  Arta 54 was facture wild and will be placed behind on prolongation this week.

In NorthWest Gharib (“NWG�) a NWG 38A-Inj good was designed as a H2O injector to yield fountainhead vigour support to raise liberation for a pool.  The good was drilled to a sum abyss of 5,552 feet and encountered 92 feet of Red Bed with an internally estimated net oil compensate of approximately 34 feet (scheduled for execution as an oil good before to a finish of June). This good has extended a NWG 38 pool red bed territory to a South by 0.4 kilometers and is approximately 83 feet structurally revoke than a NWG 38A-2 good that was a before lowest famous oil in a pool.  With a NWG 38A-Inj good results, a stream famous oil mainstay in a NWG 38A pool is approximately 575 feet. The Company will now cavalcade NWG 38A-7, located approximately 0.4 kilometers southeast of NWG 38A-Inj, targeting a same red bed pool in a structurally revoke position.  Should a NWG 38A-7 good also confront additional oil column, a Company has designed an additional good serve south during NWG 38A-8 as a strait for fountainhead vigour support.

The drilling supply has been temporarily built during NWG 38A-Inj tentative troops approvals of a NWG 38A-7 good and dual wells in M margin during West Bakr that are approaching by finish of June.  It is approaching that a 3 good drilling module will be finished in early Q3.

The Company also finished a 4 good (Arta 48, Arta 54, NWG 1AX, NWG 5X) kick module during May/June targeting Nukhul and parsimonious Red Bed firm wells.  The wells have all been fraced and are being placed on prolongation for post frac purify up.  It is approaching that any of a wells will furnish during an initial 30 day normal rate of 120 to 150 Bopd after recuperating frac liquid formed on offsetting producers.

Western Desert
In North West Sitra (“NWS�) a Company began mobilizing dual drilling rigs to plcae a second week of June.  The smaller 1,000 HP drilling supply is paraphernalia adult during NWS 9 and a incomparable 2,000 HP drilling supply is relocating to NWS 12.  It is approaching that drilling will embark before to month finish following a sold inspection/acceptance processes. 

NWS 9 is targeting a built Cretaceous awaiting with a designed drilling time of approximately 30 days. NWS 12 is targeting a deeper built Cretaceous/Jurassic awaiting with a designed drilling time of approximately 60 days. 

In addition, good site credentials is underway on South Ghazalat (“SG�) for a designed SG 1 and SG 2 scrutiny wells.  SG 1 and SG 2 are targeting multi-stacked Cretaceous prospects.

BOEs competence be misleading, quite if used in isolation. A BOE acclimatisation ratio of 6 thousand cubic feet of healthy gas to one tub of oil homogeneous (6 mcf: 1 bbl) is formed on an appetite equivalency acclimatisation process essentially germane during a burner tip and does not paint a value equivalency during a wellhead. Given that a value ratio formed on a stream cost of wanton oil as compared to healthy gas is significantly opposite from a appetite equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a acclimatisation on a 6:1 basement competence be dubious as an denote of value.

References in this press recover to prolongation exam rates, are useful in confirming a participation of hydrocarbons, however such rates are not pliant of a rates during that such wells will embark prolongation and decrease afterward and are not demonstrative of prolonged tenure opening or of ultimate recovery. While encouraging, readers are cautioned not to place faith on such rates in calculating a total prolongation for TransGlobe. A vigour transitory research or well-test interpretation has not been carried out in honour of all wells. Accordingly, a Company cautions that a prolongation exam formula should be deliberate to be preliminary.

This information is formed on management-generated form curves formed on a multiple of chronological opening of comparison wells and management’s expectancy of what competence be achieved from destiny wells. The information represents what government thinks an normal good will achieve. Individual wells competence be aloft or revoke though over a incomparable series of wells government expects a normal to come out to a form curve. Over time form curves can and will change formed on achieving some-more prolongation story on comparison wells or some-more new execution information on newer wells.
