The Anglo-Turkish oil and gas independent, Genel Energy, announced that a successful side track of the original Ber Bahr 1 exploration well in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, has confirmed the existence of a commercial oil discovery.

The Ber Bahr 1 well original TD was 3933m in the upper Permian Chia Zairi formation. It encountered good oil shows over a c.300m interval in the Jurassic. Two drill stem tests over this interval failed to flow. The original well has now been successfully side tracked and in several tests, conducted over a period of days, achieved a sustainable flow rate of 2100 STB/ day of 15 API oil from the Middle Jurassic age Sargelu Formation.

Dr John Hurst, head of Exploration of Genel Energy, said:
“The Ber Bahr well adds a further commercial oil discovery to Genel’s already significant KRI resource base. We plan to begin a phased development of the field in the second half of this year."
