Lithuania exploration well starts drilling

Drilling of the Lapgiriai-1 well on the Raiseiniai license onshore Lithuania
has started. The primary target of this well is a Silurian reservoir that
encountered oil in an adjacent Soviet era well.

The old well, drilled in the 1980’s, was never properly produced even though it
tested oil to surface. Lapgiriai-1 is being drilled as a ‘twin’ well to the old
well to appraise the reef like feature originally penetrated with a view to
conduct a long term production test of the target formation.
The Lapgiriai-1 well is planned to be drilled vertically to a total measured
depth of just under 1,200 metres. Drilling operations are expected to last for
40 days.
Tethys Oil has a 26% indirect interest in the Raiseiniai license through a
shareholding in Jylland Olie APS.
