Sterling Energy 'disappointed' with Iraqi Kurdistan test  14.6.2011  

June 14, 2011

UK-listed Sterling Resources has wrapped up a flow test on the Sangaw North-1 well, in the Kurdistan autonomous region of Iraq, but has been left “disappointed” with the results.

The test was carried out over the open hole section of the well between 3338 metres and 4190 metres which contained target horizons in the Jurassic Mus and Butmah formations and the Triassic Kurra Chine formation.

Sterling said the well flowed at a stabilised rate of about 4.6 million cubic feet of gas per day and 7280 barrels of formation water per day over a 12 hour period through a 1.5 inch choke.

It added that about 74% of the produced gas was hydrocarbon gas with the remainder made up of 24% hydrogen sulphide and 2% carbon dioxide.
"We are disappointed that the open hole flow test has not demonstrated commercial hydrocarbon flow rates within the deeper horizons of the Sangaw North-1 well,” Sterling chief executive Angus MacAskill said.

“The data acquired during this test will be integrated with all the other data acquired in well operations to determine the potential of these horizons.“

Sterling attempted to carry out wireline logging operations to identify the contribution from individual zones within the open hole section but was unsuccessful due to mechanical restrictions within the flow testing equipment.

The company will now carry out a cased hole flow test across a 100 metre interval within the Jurassic aged Sargelu formation followed by another test across a 100 metre interval within the Cretaceous aged Kometan formation.
