Report summaryThe Ain Zalah and West Butmah fields are located in the far north of Iraq, close to the borders with Syria and Turkey. Both fields are east-west trending anticlines that produce light sour crude from Cretaceous carbonate reservoirs. The fields came onstream in the 1950s and produced at a combined rate of around 20,000 b/d until the early 1970s. Output declined steeply in the 1970s and Ain Zalah is thought to be producing small volumes of about 500 b/d. The West Butmah field was shut-in around 2003.
