The company added that an update on further payments will be included in a trading and operations update scheduled for 16 January.

Earlier this week, Genel told investors that the TT-34 well at the Taq Taq field will commence production “around the middle of January”.

The TT-34 well has shown test flow rates of over 3,900 barrels of oil per day (bopd), though it is expected to yield between 1,500 and 2,000 bopd once it comes on stream.

On Monday, Genel said that individual zone testing is underway to determine the long-term production strategy, the company said, adding the rig has now moved to drill the TT-35 well, also on the northern flank of the field, currently preparing to spud.

Overall the Taq Taq field is producing around 13,650 bopd.
