The Wara reservoir is one of the four main reservoirs in the Greater Burgan field, the world’s largest sandstone oil field. The Wara reservoir is separated vertically from the remaining reservoirs by extensive carbonate and shale intervals. However, extensive faulting does allow communication between the Wara sand and the Burgan Sands below. The Wara Formation is a very heterogenetic / siliciclastic reservoir encountered at a depth of about 3000 feet subsea and covering an area of 750 KM2. Wara reservoir has an average thickness of 160 ft. and historically, 400 wells have produced from the Wara reservoir at one time or another.
