Our company started drilling South Çalıktepe-3 exploration well on April 30, 2017, following the South Çalıktepe-2 Exploration Well to boost production and determine the reservoir boundaries in the "South Çalıktepe Oil Field," where we discovered oil in the first quarter of 2016 within the cities of Diyarbakır and Mardin.
Planned as a 2,300-meter and 45-50-day drilling operation, South Çalıktepe - 3 Exploration Well was completed in 34 days, one day earlier than South Çalıktepe - 2 Exploration Well. Approximately 17-meter saturated reservoir level was identified, and production commenced after completion operations. South Çalıktepe - 3 Exploration Well started production on June 6, 2017, with a 618 barrel/day capacity. This increased Çalık Petrol's oil production to 1,400 barrels per day. Our search and development activities continue at full speed.
