Iraq Kurdistan Swara Tika oil discovery gauged

By OGJ editors

Two Texas operators have gauged a large oil discovery on the Sarsang block north of Dohuk on the Zagros fold belt in Iraqi Kurdistan.

The Swara Tika-1 discovery well went to a total depth of 12,500 ft and encountered 1,500 ft of gross oil column. Flow rates were established from three zones totaling more than 7,000 b/d of light oil plus associated gas. Tubing size and test equipment capacity limited the flow rates.

Hillwood International Energy, a private Dallas independent, operates the 340,000-acre Sarsang block, which is adjacent to the license that contains the Tawke oil field discovery (OGJ Online, July 27, 2011). Marathon Oil Corp. has 25% interest in Sarsang.
