Reservoir quality is fair with porosities ranging from 15% to 20%.
The Company is setting production casing in the well and expects to begin testing ESKN-1 [early in] 2013 to determine commerciality after obtaining the relevant government approvals. The Zhanros rig will now move to drill the Tolegen West prospect in Western Block E, targeting eight million barrels of mean resources.
