WesternZagros Resources Ltd. reports that during the post-perforation cleanup period of the Eocene testing program, an initial low rate flow of 42° to 45° API oil to surface has been achieved at the Kurdamir-2 exploration well in Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
Flow rates and the potential for commerciality cannot be confirmed until the test is completed, according to the company. Acidization of the Eocene interval is underway to improve the flow rates and an update of results will be issued when post-stimulation testing is complete.
The operator, Talisman (Block K44), is conducting a cased-hole test between the depths of 2,830 m (9,285 ft) and 3,040 m (9,974 ft) in the Eocene-age formation. The Eocene is a secondary target in Kurdamir-2.
WesternZagros and Talisman each have a 40% working interest in the Kurdamir block, with the Kurdistan regional government holding the remaining 20%.
