Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/16/2013, Location: Middle East

DNO International ASA (DNO International), the Norwegian oil and gas company, announced that it has commenced extensive testing of the Tawke-23 exploration well in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. The well is the second horizontal well drilled by the Company in the Tawke field and has encountered continuous oil shows within a 930 metre horizontal section in the main Cretaceous reservoir. The test program, expected to last up to three weeks, will focus on ten fracture zones with production potential.

The Company's first horizontal well in the field, Tawke-20, tested 8,000 barrels per day from each of ten producing intervals in the Cretaceous reservoir and is currently on stream at an average rate of 25,000 barrels per day.

Also currently drilling in Kurdistan are two other Tawke horizontal development wells, Tawke-21 and Tawke-22, and the highly deviated Benenan-4 well in the Erbil license designed to appraise the additional reserves encountered in the Benenan field by the Benenan-3 well earlier this year. Benenan-3 has been completed and temporary production facilities installed, pending government approval to commence sales.

The Bastora-2 well in the Erbil license has been completed and temporary production facilities are undergoing installation. The Bastora field development plan was previously approved and the Ministry of Natural Resources now has authorized sales from the field with first deliveries anticipated in October.
