Field Development Plan for Block 56 submitted to the MEM

Tethys Oil has, through its wholly owned subsidiary, achieved a significant milestone in its exploration and appraisal activities by submitting its first comprehensive Field Development Plan (“FDP”) for Block 56, Mudawrat Concession, to the Omani Ministry of Energy and Minerals (“MEM”) for review and approval.

The FDP details the plan to develop and appraise resources in three discovered oil fields, the Al Jumd, Menna and Sarha fields, covering multiple reservoirs. The development of the fields is expected to be conducted by drilling several horizontal development wells. The surface development concept will be designed to accommodate future needs and will initially use a fast-track option with export via neighbouring operators, as was the case during the Al Jumd extended well test in 2023.

The FDP also includes a roadmap for a continued exploration strategy for Block 56’s additional leads and prospects.

Upon the Ministry of Energy and Minerals’ approval, the terms of the Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement (“EPSA”) for Block 56 will be extended to fulfil the commercial development of the discovered fields in the block.

The Partner Group for Block 56 consists of Tethys Oil as the operator with a 65 percent share, and the partners Biyaq Oilfield Services with a 25 percent share, Medco Arabia Ltd with a five percent share and Intaj LLC with a five percent share.

“We are very pleased to have submitted the FDP for Block 56, a major milestone for Tethys Oil. We now look forward to getting the MEM’s approval to declare commerciality and start the implementation of the FDP as well as putting the fields in production. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Ministry of Energy and Minerals, Petroleum Development Oman and MedcoEnergi for their cooperation and support. I would also like to thank our team for their hard work and our partners on Block 56, Biyaq Oilfield Services, Medco Arabia Ltd and Intaj LLC, for their valuable contributions.”, says Magnus Nordin, Managing Director of Tethys Oil.
