The Mishovdag oil field is located in the southwest of Baku, Azarbaijan. The sandstone reservoirs consisting of five middle Pliocene age Horizons I, II, Ill, IV, and XII provide 40% of total total oil production from the Sirvan oil field region. The reservoir trap is an anticline, and its size is approximately 15 x 5 km. Since its discovery in 1956, 516 wells had been drilled and 198 of them are still producing from successive layers of sandstone formations.
