Kazakhstan North Ustyurt exploration basin


Kazakhstan North Ustyurt exploration basin

Report summary

Only a handful of discoveries have been made to date in Kazakhstan's North Ustyurt basin. These discoveries have been in two plays; the Jurassic Oil play in the west and the Tertiary Gas play in the east. Due to the modest yet-to-find resources in both plays and challenging fiscal terms, the basin offers limited potential for value creation. Total entered the basin in 2012 and was later joined by Maersk. However wells drilled in 2015 targeting the Jurassic Oil and Tertiary Gas plays were unsuccessful and both companies exited in 2016.

Description

Oil and gas exploration is an industry in constant motion, from technological breakthroughs to shifting supply and demand. The high costs of finding and developing new oil and gas fields that can be commercially developed has created a challenging atmosphere, with explorers increasingly seeing low returns, low value and slow progress.

This Exploration Basin report provides a detailed analysis of exploration of this basin, including discovery and development costs, location maps and information about licensing and fiscal terms. You'll also find information about discovery and development costs and full-cycle returns.

Explorers and advisors can use this report to understand the history and potential value of this basin.

Wood Mackenzie has access to historic data for over 450 basins and forecasts for more than 125 basins. We provide accurate information on the cost of exploration compared to the value of discoveries so that you can develop profitable strategies.

Our in-depth analysis gives you the information you need to navigate the ever-changing challenges of oil and gas exploration so you can make critical commercial decisions.
