The field is producing from two wells drilled laterally into a Lower Cretaceous Thamama reservoir straddling the Sharjah-Ajman offshore boundary. In its second-quarter financial results, Dana Gas reported Zora field had produced 295,750 boe (3,250 boe/d) during the period from first production on Feb. 28. The associated gas plant was operating at a reduced capacity as commissioning was ongoing, the company said.
