As part of the first stage of pre-development, RusGazAlyans commenced development drilling. Construction is underway for the first horizontal development well with a vertical deviation of more than 2,000 meters. The well is designed to have a measured depth of about 2,700 meters, with a vertical depth of 830 meters. Its construction, which includes geological studies, is expected to be finished by the end of this June. It is planned to complete the construction of the first six development wells by no later than Q1 of 2021.
