DNO International said that its deep Tawke-17 well tested 1,500 bpd of 26-28° API crude oil from an Upper Jurassic reservoir underlying Tawke field in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. Separately, the Tawke-20 well, the company’s first horizontal well in Tawke field, has flowed an average 8,000 bopd from each of the first four of 10 fractured corridors penetrated by the well. Testing continues on both wells. Tawke-17, the deepest well drilled by DNO in Tawke field, encountered several Triassic zones that proved either tight or water-bearing. Two additional, identified reservoir intervals in the Upper Jurassic remain to be perforated and tested. DNO International holds a 55% interest in, and operates, the Tawke license. Genel Energy holds 25%, and the Kurdistan Regional Government holds the remaining 20%.
