Gas Plus Khalakan (GPK) reported that the No. 1 sidetrack well in the Shewashan field of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq was successfully drilled and recompleted recently as a horizontal producer in the Qamchuga formation. The well is producing from 500 B/D to 700 B/D of oil, although it may require further stimulation to meet predrill production estimates that were based upon the original Shewashan-1 vertical well. The company expects total production at the Shewashan development to hit 10,000 B/D early next year. GPK is the operator with an 80% interest in the development.
