New oil discovery onshore Oman – Exploration well B4EW6 flows in excess of 2,200 BOPD

The exploration well B4EW6 drilled on a previously undrilled structure onshore
Oman has tested flows in excess of 2,200 BOPD on a 32/64 inch choke from the
Lower Buah formation. B4EW6 was drilled approximately 13 km south of the B4EW4
discovery. The new B4EW6 well constitutes the best flows encountered from the
Lower Buah outside the B4EW4 area so far. The well is hooked up to the
production system to undergo a long term production test.
“We are very happy that the Lower Buah has delivered again. B4EW6 looks similar
to B4EW4. As data comes in, we will learn more, but we are hopeful it could
prove as prolific as B4EW4,” comments Tethys Oil’s managing director Magnus
Tethys Oil AB, through its wholly owned subsidiary Tethys Oil Block 3 and 4
Ltd, has a 30 per cent interest in Blocks 3 and 4. Partners are Mitsui E&P
Middle East B.V. with 20 per cent and the operator CC Energy Development S.A.L.
(Oman branch) holding the remaining 50 per cent.
