Lukoil and Inpex Corporation have successfully completed testing of the fifth well at the Eridu field (Block 10) in the southern part of Iraq.

The well recorded daily flow rate of more than 1,500 cubic meters of oil from the Mishrif formation and proved the current geological model of the Eridu field as effective, Lukoil said in a statement.

In the mid-term, Lukoil will continue geological exploration at Block 10 – it plans to drill and test several appraisal wells, complete 3D seismic surveys at the Eridu field and 2D seismic surveys at the block's southern and central parts.
