Total discovery in Kurdistan flows at 3,900 BOPD

Oct 31, 2013 12:00 AM

Total reported that its Mirawa-1 well, onshore Kurdistan, has flowed at between 3,200 and 3,900 barrels of oil per day in three drill-stem tests after it discovered light (39 to 41-degree API) oil in two Jurassic carbonate reservoirs.

Total said that three other formation tests have confirmed the presence of gas and condensate reservoirs in the Triassic layer. Choked drill-stem tests flowed at between 20 and 30 million cubic feet of gas per day, while one formation flowed at 1,700 barrels per day of condensate.

"The discovery is very encouraging and demonstrates that our strategy to grow in this very prospective region is on the right track," Arnaud Breuillac, senior vice president for Total Exploration & Production in the Middle East, commented in a company statement:

Located some 40 miles from the city of Erbil, the Mirawa-1 discovery well on the Harir Block was drilled to a depth of approximately 13,980 feet.
