(IDP) - Norwegian independent oil producer DNO said two new wells at its Tawke field in northern Iraq have both confirmed oil deposits. "DNO is pleased to announce that Tawke No. 8 has confirmed oil in the central/down flank position of the field," DNO said in a statement on Wednesday. "Good reservoir properties have been confirmed, and so far the well has achieved a gross rate of more than 17,000 barrels of oil per day aggregated from four tests. A maximum of 8,000 bod was achieved from the most productive test interval." Tawke No. 5A has been drilled to its final depth, DNO said, and confirmed oil in the central area of the lower reservoir.
