WesternZagros Resources Ltd. (TSXV:WZR) reported that it has completed well control operations at the Kurdamir-1 well.

The open hole in the Kurdamir-1 well has been plugged and cemented up to approximately 2,500 metres, concluding WesternZagros’ well control operations. No further drilling is planned for Kurdamir-1 at this time. While the previous Upper Oligocene test rates were limited due to testing equipment restrictions, an initial well test analysis conducted by an independent third party indicated that reservoir production potential of approximately 52 million cubic feet per day of gas and 2,240 barrels per day of condensate could be expected from this interval. The decision to test the Lower Oligocene at this time is based on recent wireline log analysis, which shows that even though the reservoir in the Lower Oligocene does not appear to be of the same quality as that of the Upper Oligocene, the potential exists, nonetheless, to confirm the presence of either an oil leg below the discovered gas condensate column, or a larger gas and gas condensate column.
