The discovery well KL6-1-3 was drilled and completed at a depth of 1,596 meters, and encountered oil pay zones with a total thickness of approximately 20 meters.
The well was tested to produce around 1,178 barrels of oil per day.
The exploration of Kenli 6-1 further proved the exploration potential of the Neogene lithologic reservoir in the Laizhou Bay.
