Sohrab anticline is located in northern Dezful (Abadan Plain) in the vicinity and parallel to Iran-Iraq border, north of Azadegan oil field. It has been detached from Azadegan oil field by an embayment. This oil field is located 115 km to the northwest of Ahwaz city and 30 km to the west of Susangerd.
Regarding that there is no outcrop of Sohrab anticline on surface, existing of Sohrab structure has been proved by seismic operation. National Iranian Oil Company (N.I.O.C) has run complete seismic operation during Abadan plain phase 3 in Sohrab district. Then exploration well Sohrab-1 was drilled in 2012 which proved the existing of oil in Ilam, Sarvak, and Kazhdumi. Then N.I.O.C drilled the second exploration well in the South part of the field.
Well No.1 has been completed for early production phase by Arvandan Oil and Gas Company. Currently the coupling lines of this well to the Northern cluster of the Southern Azadegan is under construction. The well No.2 of this field has newly been completed and needs transferring pipe lines and surface facilities. Researches and negotiations for the development of this field is ongoing in the form of IPC (Iran Petroleum Contract).
