In parallel, preparations are ongoing for the next well site location and access road for the "Shakestan" prospect, which will be drilled back to back following the completion of the first well, "Sehqanat deep - 1".
The Munir Block is operated by Edison Gas (40% working interest) with partners Petronas Carigali Overseas Sdn Bhd (30%) and Lundin Petroleum (30%).
Ashley Heppenstall President and CEO comments: "We are excited about the prospectivity of our exploration drilling campaign in Iran. The Munir Block is situated in a proven petroleum system where there has been little exploration activity in recent years. The seismic acquisition has identified large structures which have the potential for major discoveries.
