The Thayyem field, in the Euphrates region, was discovered in 1984. The discovery was the stimulus for the establishment of the Al Furat Petroleum Company (AFPC).[3]

Thayyem is the AFPC's main field, however it is a mature field and production levels have been declining since 1991.[4] Like other AFPC fields Thayyem produces a light grade of oil, with low sulphur content.[5]
