Kurdistan Region of Iraq
The Miran West-2 well has reached a total depth of 4,426 meters. The well encountered indications of hydrocarbons from intervals within the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic in excess of 2,500 metres. A number of zones within these intervals have been identified for testing in both the deeper exploration targets and the initial appraisal objective in the Cretaceous. Testing operations have commenced and a further update will be provided on completion of these tests, expected within the next couple of months.

The acquisition of approximately 550 square kilometers of 3D seismic over the Miran Block has recently commenced. This, along with an extensive fieldwork study that began in October 2010, will help establish future drilling locations to exploit the reservoirs’ fracture networks.

Heritage is looking to contract at least one rig to continue the drilling programme across the Block in 2011, which will include an exploration well on the Miran East structure. Heritage has operated in Kurdistan for approximately 700 days without any lost time or environmental incidents.
