- Within the MGC region, exploratory operations commenced with the drilling of 38 Satibe structural wells in 1951 and 1952. The total depth of the Satibe wells ranged from 95 to 922m MD. The general purpose in drilling the structural wells was to obtain lithological, stratigraphic, petrographic, and mineralogical information from the area. Oil and gas shows (gas bubbles, smell of oil, oil films) were recorded in approximately half of the structural wells from the Sarmatian through the Maykop section.Udabno structural wells were then drilled between 1953 and 1955. Located approximately 5 km southwest of the Satibe wells, a total of 31 wells were drilled.

- In 1960 and 1961, additional 29 structural wells in the Sakharetba region with depths ranging from 201 to 1,123 m MD.
- Between 1961 and 1965 drilling moved to the Mtsarekehevi area where 57 wells were completed, mostly in shallow Pliocene sands and conglomerates with many shows of oil and gas, including some that were described as “fountains” of gas.
Since attaining operator status of Block 12, Frontera has demonstrated the producibility of shallow gas deposits in Pliocene sediments. Presently, Frontera is selling MGC produced Natural gas through Georgia’s gas distribution grid.
