Norway’s DNO said on 4 April that output from its Tawke license (DNO 75%op, Genel 25%) in Iraqi Kurdistan has recovered rapidly after torrential flooding washed away large sections of the Khabur riverbanks. The flooding interfered with tanker truck loadings relied upon for local sales and “several substantial pieces of equipment weighing tons were washed away and have yet to be located.” DNO says it has now installed additional truck loading facilities at Tawke.

Whilst the larger Peshkabir field was not impacted, DNO says the 10-day shut-in at the Tawke field saw the license’s overall output fall to 65,000 b/d before rebounding to 80,000 b/d by 30 March. Partner Genel Energy had indicated on 26 March that Tawke’s output is expected to stabilize at 80,000 b/d for the foreseeable future. (CONTINUED - 258 WORDS)
