DNO said it has completed three new production wells at the flagship Tawke field in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
The Norwegian oil and gas operator has made the move as part of its stepped up drilling program which kicked off in July this year.
The Tawke-31 well will be brought on production after an acid stimulation program.
Meanwhile, two additional wells targeting the shallow Jeribe reservoir, Tawke-33 and Tawke-34, are also being readied for production.
A fourth well, Tawke-37, will be spud next week. The four wells are expected to cost less than $20 million in total and add about 10% to field output capacity.
Earlier this month the company also spudded the Peshkabir-2 well to appraise the Jurassic reservoir and explore the deeper Cretaceous horizon on a previous discovery to the west of the main Tawke field.
DNO said plans to engage a third drilling rig were dropped in September, though the company expects to re-start investments to boost production to a targeted level of 135,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) following the resumption of regular and predictable payments.
Tawke production during the third quarter averaged 109,159 bopd, of which 108,759 bopd was delivered for export through Turkey.
