The Halfaya field, discovered in 1976, is located in the south area of Iraq towards the border with Iran in the Amara region. The field structure is an anticline of about 10 km width by 30 km length with several oil bearing reservoirs of Cretaceous to Miocene age. These reservoirs in either carbonates or clastics formations contain volumes of hydrocarbons over 15 Gbbl OOIP. The production started in 2005 with 5 wells after a campaign of 7 exploration wells in 8 formations (Fig.1). A fast track seismic acquisition, processing and interpretation were carried out in order to enable the interpretation and integration of results in G&G studies for the optimization of the Final Development Plan.
