Gulf Keystone Petroleum is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company. It was founded in 2001 by UAE, Kuwaiti, Saudi and US private equity. It is now operated in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
where is this fracture porosity report to which you refer? please could you elaborate thank you.
re a slight puzzle
Because iraq doesnt want the kurds to become an independent state......... and neither does turkey. fact is the way they fought with the support theyve had from the us the cat might be out the bag so to speak! unfortunately iraq is fractured like an oil well.... sorry dreadful pun! what is great is that the kurdistan regional government and the iragi government are getting on well...strong buy imo
I'm not saying it *is*, but if...
...the Fracture Porosity at Shaikan were (say) 4%, then the Reserves and Resources in the fracture system alone would be an amazing SIXTEEN BILLION BARRELS. In addition to that, there would be the recoverable oil in the reservoir matrix. Now it has to be said that 4% fracture porosity would be exceptionally high, and unless the geology at Shaikan were exceptionally unusual, such a level would be utterly possible. But we know that Shaikan is indeed very unusual...John Gerstenlauer has told us so. It has a Productivity Index of OVER 200 on ALL the Shaikan wells. Those wells could individually flow, on an unrestricted basis, at tens of thousands of barrels per day EACH. Where else can one find such wells? Unless the reservoir is porous and permeable to an almost unique extent, such figures are totally impossible. John has very recently said that the drill bit dropped 3 metres...through a huge fracture or vug. The question arises: why don't the Bishops open Joanna Southcott's Shaikan Fracture Report? Is it because the figure is LOW and would disappoint the shareholders? Or is it because the figure is so HIGH that nobody knows how to handle the consequences of revealing it? Or is it because not enough wells have been drilled in the 150 km2 structure that the fracture porosity is currently unmeasurable? The word "unmeasurable" was reportedly used at the Shaikan discovery celebrations in 2009. One thing's for sure: Gulf are studiously avoiding giving the fracture porosity figure. John's comments are hardly consistent with the figure being LOW. But what is it? What is the range within it is believed to fall? I do not have the answer; I wish I did. Distress of nations and perplexity will increase until the Bishops open Joanna Southcott's Shaikan Fracture Report.
a slight puzzle
why on earth dont Iraq let the us supply the kurds with weapons and run the armed forces job done
Great tune kk Good point and fwiw I don't believe he is what he makes out. On the other hand, who cares. I know others are happy not to filter and listen to him but the sheer magnitude of posts... is too much simpleton negging power for me to want to put up with. Give me NM any day. At least he makes solid points and often very credible ones at that which make you think rather than want to jump off a bridge!
