Iraq Southeast Turkey Foldbelt exploration basin

Report summary

Developments can be complex in the basin because of the mountainous terrain and heavy oil yet the past decade has seen exceptional value created in this relatively low cost onshore environment. Since 2011, success rates have fallen and lower volumes discovered.  Out to 2035, exploration is expected to continue to create value and offer attractive returns to investors, albeit at lower levels than that seen in the past.  The advance of the Islamic State militant group has increased security concerns in the province and has directly impacted exploration commitments in the basin, and if not resolved, could have a negative impact on future exploration levels in the basin.
