The forward plan is to stabilise the well, enlarge the hole and install the liner prior to commencing the comprehensive testing programme as planned

During the week, wireline logging operations were completed and a number of sidewall cores were recovered.

Mud losses have been encountered while preparing to widen the hole, in order to run a 5” liner.

The forward plan is to stabilise the well, enlarge the hole and install the liner prior to commencing the comprehensive testing programme as planned.

Taza 2 is located 10 kilometres north-west of Taza 1 and is designed to appraise the hydrocarbon-bearing intervals discovered by Taza 1 (Jeribe/Dhiban and Euphrates/Kirkuk Formations), as well as explore deeper Tertiary and Cretaceous targets including the Shiranish Formation.

The participants in Taza 2 are Oil Search with 60 per cent holdings, Total E&P Kurdistan Region of Iraq (Taza) B.V. with 20 per cent, and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) with 20 per cent.
