Almost a year's worth of catching up is about to commence.

And 2013 is going to be the last year of the catalog. It's gotten too tedious, which is why I haven't updated it in a while.

EDIT: Unless stated otherwise, these finds are in the "recoverable" category. Forgot to add that to most of the catalog entries.

------------------------------------

Article gives no indication if this is a recoverable amount or an OIP amount, so I'll be conservative and assume it's OIP.

Size of discovery: 1 billion barrels (presumed) OIP
Date: January 21, 2013
Company(s): Maysan Oil Company
Name: No name given
Location: Iraq
API: No information
Flow rate of test well(s): No information
Estimated production startup date: No information
LINK

Recoverable running total year to date: 170 million barrels minimum to 190 million barrels maximum
OIP running total year to date: 1 billion barrels minimum to 1 billion barrels maximum
