2013 the Sakson Hilong 10 rig (2000 HP) spudded the AAS-1 well in the Hawler

light oil potential in the lower Jurassic and Triassic and heavy oil potential 
in the Cretaceous and is expected to reach total depth of approximately 4,220 
metres in the fourth quarter of 2013.

late April 2013 and is expected to reach total depth late in the third quarter 
of 2013. Oryx Petroleum has a 65% participating and working interest in and is
