Norwegian operator DNO announced a two-thirds increase in production from the Peshkabir field in the Tawke license in the Kurdistan region of Iraq to 25,000 BOPD following completion of the Peshkabir-4 well-testing program. The well has been placed on production at a rate of 10,000 BOPD through temporary, capacity-constrained test facilities, with the oil being trucked to Fish Khabur for export. The Peshkabir-4 well was designed as a high-angle well to assess the central part of the structure 4 km west of the Peshkabir-3 well and drilled to a measured depth of 3525 m, including an 1150-m extended-reach reservoir section. A total of 11 zones were tested and flowed between 1,500 and 7,000 BOPD per zone. DNO operates and has a 75% interest in the Tawke license, which contains the Tawke and Peshkabir fields, with partner Genel Energy holding the remaining 25%. Together, output from the two fields has averaged 106,000 BOPD this year to date.
