Operational update Oman
The first appraisal well into the Lower Buah section of the B4EW4 structure on Block 4 onshore Oman confirms the presence of oil and flows more than 1,000 BOPD from 32/64 inch choke. The B4EW4-4 well was drilled approximately 1 km from the discovery well B4EW4-1. The B4EW4-1 well continues to yield good flows under the long term production test from the Lower Buah. The new well will also be hooked up to the testing equipment for a long term production test. Appraisal drilling and other work will continue on the B4EW4 structure both in the Lower Buah as well as in the other oil bearing reservoirs of the structure.
A new exploration well is in progress on a look alike structure to B4EW4 designated B4EW5. The new structure has been identified from recently completed 3D seismic and is located some 7 km south of B4EW4 also in block 4. The B4EW5 well will primarily target the Lower Buah and Khufai sections.
