The well is operated by Genel. This was the sidetrack test (initial testing failed) and this time around we’re talking about flow rates of about 2,100 barrels of oil per day. Development of the field will begin in the second half of this year. Genel and Gulf Keystone each hold a 40% stake in the license, with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) holding 20%. For Gulf Keystone, it represents the fifth discovery across four blocks in which it has an interest in Kurdistan.

The Ber Bahr find, in combination with this, boosts its buy-out position. Genel Energy is a different game altogether and becoming more of an investor attraction by the week, in large part based on its amazing success in Kurdistan. Now is the time to get in on Genel, before it starts producing in full force for sale…
