GPK Spuds Fourth Production Well in KRI

Gas Plus Khalakan, the sole contractor of the Khalakan production sharing contract in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, announced Thursday the spud of a fourth production well in the region, Shewashan-4.

The well is designed to test new mapping which places further reserves up-dip in the Shewashan Cretaceous reservoir, as well as testing the deeper Jurassic potential. The deviated Shewashan-3 well, which spud July 28, is currently continuing to progress towards target depth and well completion for production is expected to occur before the end of the year.

The Shewashan field continues to sell oil produced from Shewashan-2, which in 2016 has averaged 3,600 barrels per day. The discovery well Shewashan-1, which was completed as a producer, is undergoing production logging and is expected to be brought back on-stream once a water producing zone is isolated.
