Marathon Oil Corporation and its partners announced they have received approval from the Kurdistan Regional Government for the first phase in the oil development of the Atrush block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

The Atrush-1 discovery well was drilled in 2011, and is located approximately 50 miles northwest of Erbil. The development project will consist of drilling three production wells and constructing a central processing facility. Marathon Oil and its partners expect to achieve first production by early 2015 with an estimated initial gross production of approximately 30,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd). The approval of the Field Development Plan for Phase 1 provides for a 25-year production period.
