UPDATE 1-Gulf Keystone finds more oil at Kurdistan block

Wed, 5th Jan 2011 08:14

LONDON, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Explorer Gulf Keystone Petroleum said on Wednesd
ay it had found substantial volumes of oil at its licence in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, at shallower depths than a previous large discovery.

Gulf Keystone estimated it had found 220 million barrels of probable oil reserves at a well drilled to test the shallower Cretaceous zones, near the large Shaikan discovery it made at greater depths in 2009.

'The Cretaceous resources evaluated by the Shaikan-3 well are massive by any standard. They represent a significant oil resource for Kurdistan and Iraq,' said Chief Operating Officer John Gerstenlauer in a statement.

Under the 'possible reserves' measurement - oil which has a 10 percent certainty of being produced - there could be 2.2 billion barrels of oil in place at the shallower levels of Shaikan, the company said.

Gulf Keystone, which has a 75 percent stake in the block, said the well would now be converted to produce oil from the deeper geological zones while it worked on a plan to develop the shallower resources.

The company is currently contesting claims made against it by Excalibur Ventures over an interest of up to 30 percent in its Kurdistan blocks.
