The gross exported crude oil from Tawke was 64,145 bopd in July. Additional third party crude oil was delivered and exported via the DNO operated facilities at Fishkabour at an average rate of 12,087 bopd, bringing the overall exported rate through these facilities to 76,232 bopd in July. Gross production at Tawke is temporary reduced to around 50,000 bopd for reservoir monitoring activities. The average gross production for August is expected to be around 53,000 bopd.

Kurdistan Region of Iraq
- Erbil PSC: Bastora-1A horizontal test producer:
The test production at Bastora-1A recommenced in August. The surface equipment has been modified to optimize the production process. There is still a mix of drill water and spent acid being produced together with the oil when the well is produced. Various alternative methods for artificial lift are currently being assessed before putting the well into long-term test production. Produced crude oil is transported to Tawke CPF to be reprocessed and made ready for export.

- Dohuk PSC: Summail-1 exploration well:
Drilling of the Summail-1 exploration well is progressing as expected. The Cretaceous and Jurassic sections are logged and cased of using a 7” liner. Preparations to deepen the well into the Triassic are ongoing. When reaching the total depth in mid September the well will be logged and several intervals are planned to be flow tested.

- Tawke PSC: T-13 infill well:
The well reached it’s total depth of 2,486 m at 25 July 2011. The well was partly completed for production. The drilling rig DQE-9 ended the well operation on 18 August 2011 and was moved to the Peshkabir-1 location. Some completion work-over jobs at T-13 are planned to be done by the Cindy Rig in the beginning of September to prepare the well for production. Tie in of the well to the Tawke CPF is expected by the end of September 2011.

- Peshkhabir-1 exploration well:
The DQE-9 drilling rig is presently being assembled at the drilling location. Peshkabir-1 will be spudded in the near future.

Yemen
As previously reported the ZPEB Rig 905 has been stacked since 8 June 2011. The Nabrajah-21 was planned to be spud in mid September but some further delay is expected. Installation of gas engines to replace diesel driven engines for the generators in block 43 is an ongoing activity.
