Gazprom Neft Middle East is operator on two projects in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI) – Garmian and Shakal. Reserves are estimated at 34 million tonnes of oil. Gazprom Neft has a 40-percent interest in the development of the Garmian block, with Canada’s WesternZagros (the second member of the joint venture) also holding 40 percent. Gazprom Neft’s interest in the Shakal block is 80 percent, with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) holding a 20-percent interest in both projects.
The Sarqala field, belonging to the Garmian block, is located in the KRI. Development is being undertaken by the joint venture. Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazprom Neft Middle East took over operatorship of the Sarqala field in 2016.
First oil was obtained at the Garmian field in 2011, with commercial shipments commencing in 2015. Further exploration and preparations for full field development are currently ongoing.
Geological prospecting is ongoing at the Shakal block.
Gazprom Neft has utilised a range of new technologies for the first time at its Kurdish assets, including the use of wireless receivers here for seismic investigations, with this method subsequently forming the basis of the company’s “Green Seismic” programme, directed at reducing felling when working in wooded areas.
