SRAK plans to drill a total of seven wells at its 209,000-square-kilometre contract area, as part of its five-year first exploration period. The wells will be drilled in the pre-Khuff stratigraphic rock strata, 4,300-5,500 metres below the surface.

A second well, to be drilled to depths of 18,000 feet, will be located at Al-Mirtan in block 7. A drilling rig will be mobilised in the area in 2007.
