To date, the combined flow rates from these oilfields have grown at an average of 600 barrels per day during October.

Condor Petroleum has signed the first sales contract since starting commercial production at the approximate wellhead price of $29 per barrel. This price, after deducting royalties, provides a netback of $28 per barrel.

Surface casing was set as intended and drilling continues in the main hole section, while the drilling results for Poyraz 3 are expected in early next month.

Completion and testing operations will commence once the drilling rig moves off the shared pad.
