"The Company is engaged, through its subsidiaries, in the exploration for, and the acquisition, development and production of, oil and natural gas resources in Central Asia, currently in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. In Kazakhstan, the Company's assets are presently located in three contiguous blocks in an area to the west of the Aral Sea, in a geological area known as the North Ustyurt basin, which lies on the south-eastern edge of the prolific Pre-Caspian sedimentary basin and is, at the Carboniferous stratigraphic level and deeper, an extension of the Pre-Caspian Sedimentary basin. In Tajikistan, the Company's projects are located in the south west of the country, in a geologic basin known as the Afghan-Tajik basin which is the easterly extension of the Amu-Darya basin which is productive in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. In Uzbekistan, the Company operates as the service contractor under the North Urtabulak PEC for the Uzbek State Partners, which gives incremental production rights to increase production volume of oil from wells on the North Urtabulak Oil Field in the south-central part of the country, close to the border with Turkmenistan and within the Amu Darya basin. The Company is in active discussions with the Uzbek authorities on additional projects in Uzbekistan." [1]
