Iraq Widyan - North Arabian Gulf exploration basin

Report summary

Exploration in the Widyan - North Arabian Gulf Basin has provided a number of super-giant oil discoveries, trapped in compression related structures associated with the convergence of the Arabian and Iranian plates.  Despite the huge hydrocarbon potential of the region, exploration and production has been limited by a series of above-ground issues.
