Oryx Petroleum Corporation Limited announces an update for its operations in the Hawler license area of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (Kurdistan Region). The Group has implemented a number of precautionary measures to protect its employees and operations given recent security developments in northern Iraq.
In the western portion of the Hawler license area, drilling operations at the Ain Al Safra and Banan sites have been temporarily suspended, both sites secured and non-essential personnel relocated to Erbil given the proximity of such locations to recently reported hostilities in northern Iraq.
In the central portion of the Hawler license area, drilling operations and facilities construction at the Demir Dagh field remain secure and operational but continue at reduced levels primarily due to the departure of certain third-party service company personnel from the site. Production from the Demir Dagh field has also been shut-in.
