1- Introduction:
Mansuriya Gas Field is located in
 Diyala
governorate at about 45km north-east
 Ba’quba
city. It is also located at about 100 km north-eastBaghdad and north-west of 
 Hamrin
Lake. The general conditions of thefield area are slightly hilly and partly covered with water. The fieldoccurs in block 45 within the exploration zones of intermediate oilavailability.

2- Structure of the Field:
Mansuriya gas field is located in the south-eastern part of 
 Al-Fawli
 geological structure which contains number of formations in a form of achain of hills comprising number of fields like
 Kor Mor, Khashm Al- Ahmar, Mansuriya, Jaria Pica
and gas dome in
 Naft-Khana
.
a-
 
Elongated asymmetrical anticline.
b-
 
About 35 km long and (6-8) km wide.
c-
 
With structural closure of about 70 km on top of 
 Jeribe
formation(Eocene).
d-
 
 Jeribe
formation is the main reservoir of the gas in Mansuriya fieldbut some gas is also contained within other formations like
 Al-Theban 
and
 Al-Faris alasphal 
.
e-
 
The two flanks are steep and affected by reverse faults.
f-
 
The flanks dips are about 20˚ north-east and 13˚ south-east.
g-
 
Average reservoir depth is 2000 m.

3- Seismic Surveys and Drilling Activities:
Mansuriya gas field was covered by (2D) Seismic surveys during theperiod (1975-1978). The survey was extended to detailed (2D) Seismicsurvey during the period (1981-1987). During the period (1979-1990)four wells (three of them were appraisal wells) were drilled as follows:
a-
1st Exploration well (Mansuriya-1) was drilled in (1979), and provedthe presence of Natural Gas in the tertiary carbonate reservoirs within
 Jeribe
and
 Al-Faris alasphal 
formations.
b-
The wells (Mansuriya-2 and Mansuriya-3) proved that natural gas ispresent within Jeribe,
 Al-Furat
and
 Al-Serkanki
formations.
c-
Mansuriya-4 well was drilled within
 Jeribe
formation but it producedonly water.
d-
The potential gas capacity of the field was estimated to be 3.6 Tcf andthe recoverable capacity is 3.18 Tcf.
e-
Mansuriya gas field can produce 300 MMscf/day of natural gas if 10wells are drilled (8 producing wells + 2 evaluation wells).
