At the monthly Ukrainian oil auction held today, a total of 8,500 barrels of oil net to Shelton Petroleum was sold at a price of USD 97 per barrel net VAT. The oil was lifted from the Lelyaki oil field, where production was recently reinstated.
“We are very pleased that operations are back to normal at the Lelyaki oil field. The wells are on production and we have now sold our first oil following the shut-in that was recently lifted. Together with our partner Ukrnafta, we are looking forward to continuing a program of new wells, workovers and sidetrack drilling to enhance productivity from this asset and add incremental volumes,” says Zenon Potoczny, President of Shelton Petroleum.
Shelton Petroleum holds a 45% interest in the Lelyaki oil field (Kashtan Petroleum) through its wholly-owned subsidiary Zhoda 2001 Corporation. Ukrnafta, Ukraine’s largest oil and gas company, owns 55%.
