Operational update Oman
The exploration well 5 (B4EW5) on Block 4 onshore the Sultanate of Oman has been drilled to a total depth of around 3,000 metres. The well recorded oil shows in five separate formations. The well has been completed in the Lower Buah and produced by natural flow in excess of 200 BOPD. Operations with a view to increase the production rate will be carried out and plans are to place the well on a long term production test.
The well 5 structure (B4EW5) is a look alike structure to the producing well 4 structure (B4EW4), and was identified from recently completed 3D seismic.
Appraisal drilling continues on the well 4 (B4EW4) discovery. A new appraisal well is in progress southeast from the discovery well. The new well is being drilled to further appraise the extension of the Lower Buah reservoir section. The well 4 structure (B4EW4) continues to yield good flows from the Lower Buah under the long term production test from the previously completed wells.
