Oil&Gas: New DNO discovery in Oman

The Norwegian oil and gas company DNO International has announced that it has made a new offshore discovery offshore the Sultanate of Oman.

In a press release it says that the just completed West Bukha-4 well, Block 8 offshore the Sultanate of Oman, flowed on a 54/64 inch choke 7,000 barrels of 39º API oil and 15 million cubic feet of gas per day through a test separator. West Bukha-4 will be connected to the export pipeline system within days and, at the initial test rates, is expected to nearly double current oil production from the West Bukha field to 15,000 barrels per day.

The longest reach well drilled offshore Oman at nearly 6,000 meters, West Bukha-4 targets an area not penetrated by previous drilling and is the second of a three well drilling campaign initiated last year in Block 8. DNO International holds a 50 percent interest in and operates the block containing the West Bukha and Bukha fields and their respective platforms. Korea's LG International holds the remaining 50 percent interest.

Elsewhere, in Block 43, Republic of Yemen, the Nabrajah-21 well has been completed as an infill well in the Nabrajah field. Nabrajah-21, the first horizontal well drilled by DNO International into the Qishn producing interval, is averaging 800 barrels of oil per day and has increased daily Nabrajah field production to 2,200 barrels. DNO International operates Block 43 with a 56.67 interest. Following this positive outcome, the Company has commenced drilling a second horizontal well in Block 43, Nabrajah-20, before moving the rig to Block 47 to drill the Yaalen-3 well as part of the Yaalen field development plan.

DNO International ASA is an Oslo-listed, Middle East and North Africa focused, oil and gas company holding stakes in 17 licenses in various stages of exploration, development and production both onshore and offshore in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, the Republic of Yemen, the Sultanate of Oman, the United Arab Emirates and the Tunisian Republic.
