WesternZagros announced that drilling of Kurdamir-1 has progressed to a current depth of 1,700 meters with no significant drilling issues encountered, and the 13 5/8" intermediate casing was set in the Lower Fars as planned.

Total depth for Kurdamir-1 is planned to be approximately 4,000 meters. Drilling is expected to be completed in October 2009 and, upon exploration success, testing operations would commence. Kurdamir-1 is targeting four potential reservoir zones -- the Oligocene and Pilaspi/Jaddala intervals in the Tertiary, and the Shiranish and upper Qamchuqa intervals in the Cretaceous. The top of the first reservoir in the well is expected at approximately 2,100 meters.
