- March 29th, 2011

WesternZagros Resources Ltd. (CVE:WZR) drills in the Sarqala-1 well in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

WesternZagros Resources Ltd. (TSXV:WZR) has begun drilling the planned sidetrack in the Sarqala-1 well in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

The press release is quoted as saying:

The Company intends to drill a 100 metre sidetrack from the cased wellbore to test the Jeribe reservoir. Results from the drilling and testing program are anticipated in mid April, 2011. The Company originally drilled Sarqala-1 in 2008 and early 2009, suspending the well after equipment problems prevented logging. Subsequent analysis of the drilling cuttings from, and wireline well logs across, the Jeribe Formation showed good oil potential and led to the decision to re-enter the well bore and to undertake the current sidetrack operation.
