ShaMaran Restarts Drilling at Atrush

By John Lee.

ShaMaran Petroleum has announced the resumption of drilling operations on the Atrush block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Drilling operations at the Chiya Khere-8 development well were suspended for a total of 21 days by TAQA (the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company), operator of the Atrush Block, as a precautionary measure, following recent regional developments.

Civil engineering works at the Phase 1 Production Facility have continued uninterrupted during the period in which drilling operations were suspended. Mobilisation of the rig planned to drill the Chiya Khere-6 eastern appraisal well is underway.
