There are numerous oil and gas shows across 11 the 17 wells drilled in this area, within Upper Cretaceous and Cambrian formations.The Kurnub (Lower Cretaceous) and Salib (lower Cambrian) Formations were identified as the main reservoir targets. The Ghareb Formation (Maastrichtian) is considered to be the main contributing source rock for the asphalt and oil seeps found in the Dead Sea contract area. Potential source may also exist within the Ma’in (Triassic) and Huni (Jurassic) Formations. Regional and local sealing formations or intraformational shales, tight carbonates and evaporates are present.

There are 6 wells in the Azraq contract area, all drilled between 1957-1981. Five of the wells are dry and one (WG-2) has oil stains and bitumen in the Wadi Essir Formation (Turonian) and oil stains in the Naur Formation (Cenomanian). There are no discoveries or fields in this contract area, however, it is very close to the Hamza Field to the northeast which produces oil from the dolomitic carbonates of the Shueib and Hummar Formations (Cenomanian).

This does not include the Sirhan Development area which lies within this contract area and is 443 km2. According to the JF-1 well report the WS-1 well encountered oil shows in the Dubeidib Formation (Ordovician) and there was a weak presence of hydrocarbons in the test in the WS-2 well within the Dubeidib Formation. Within this contract area lies the Sirhan Development area, where there are nine wells, one of which (WS-4) is a discovery within the Dubeidib Formation.
