Gulf Keystone says Iraqi Kurdistan oilfield output target on track

Gulf Keystone Petroleum said it was on track to meet its full-year production target at Shaikan, its key oilfield in Iraqi Kurdistan

The company's stock, however, fell as much as 13.2 per cent in early trade, primarily on the uncertainty around how much money Gulf Keystone would receive from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) for oil exports, according to a trader.

The KRG said that it would pay $75 million to oil producing companies for their exports in November and make further payments on a regular basis.

The oil producer said it was nearing its production target of 40,000 gross barrels of oil per day at the Shaikan field by the end of 2014.

"Gulf Keystone's production operations and export oil sales have continued uninterrupted in 2014," chief executive John Gerstenlauer said. -- Reuters
