Gazprom Neft´s daily production at the Sarqala field in Iraqi Kurdistan reached about 30 000 barrels per day

The field is being developed by Gazprom Neft Middle East — a joint venture in which Gazprom Neft holds at 40% interest, the Kurdistan Regional Government 20% and Canada’s WesternZagros 40%

Gazprom Neft´s daily production at the Sarqala field in Iraqi Kurdistan reached about 30 000 barrels per day

Erbil, July 26 - Neftegaz.RU. Gazpromneft Middle East announced that crude oil production in the Kurdistan Region's Sarqala field has reached about 30 000 barrels per day.

In 2020 the company produced more than 1.2 million tons or 9.3 million barrels of oil at Sarqala.
In total, the Russian compan produced 5 million tons of oil from the field since they began operation there about 10years ago.

In April 2021, Gazpromneft Middle East has commissioned a 4th well at the Sarqala field in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI).
The Sarqala-4 well runs to 4.1 km in depth.
Drilling was undertaken in low-permeability carbonate rock, with high strata temperature.

One of the key features of this field is its abnormally high reservoir pressure.
Gazprom Neft come up against similar difficulties in developing hard-to-recover reserves in Russia — at Achimovsky strata.
So experience gained in Kurdistan will be useful to the company´s projects in other regions.
At the same time, the infrastructure for utilization of APG is being built at Sarqala.

Gazprom Neft plans include further geological assessments, including on the basis of drilling data from the Sarqala-4 well.
Based on those results, the company will take a decision as to the next stage of the production programme on this project.

Gazprom Neft has been Operator on the Garmian license block in the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq since 2016.
1st oil was obtained at the Garmian block in 2011.
Commercial shipments started in 2015.
