About Silk Energy AS

Silk Energy is a private Norwegian company, established specifically to secure undervalued and distressed oil assets in Kazakhstan. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, UnionField Group, it has a 50% interest in the TOO KMG-Ustyurt Limited Liability Partnership (the “LLP”). The LLP owns the Ustyurt lease comprising 6,451 sq km in the Caspian Sea region. Ustyurt is less than 100 kms from the super giant Tengiz and Kashagan fields with a combined 22 billion barrels of recoverable reserves and it's in the fairway of other giant fields.

Steve Kappella, the Chief Executive Officer of Silk Energy Limited stated: “We believe the Ustyurt license has tremendous untapped exploration potential. The license has multi-billion barrel fields to the north and south of the license but it hasn’t had anywhere near the level of seismic or exploration drilling of the neighbouring licenses because of the location and ownership history. The Company has a very experienced management team with considerable experience in Kazakhstan and the team is very excited about the current program. We have already commenced the investigation and planning on 3 prospective target locations and have a further 5 deep exploration targets and potentially dozens of targets in the Neocomian, Jurassic and Triassic.”
