Test rates from exploration well B4EW4 close to 3,000 bopd

The production testing of the exploration well B4EW4 on Block 4 onshore the
Sultanate of Oman has been completed. The well flowed at a combined rate of
close to 3,000 bopd on a 36/64 inch choke from the Buah and Khufai sections.
The well has been completed as a production well and will be put on a long term
production test.
“We are delighted with the results of this exploration well, and are looking
forward to gain more data on this new discovery from the long term production
test. The ongoing 3D seismic survey on the block has been extended to also
cover the B4EW4 structure.” comments Tethys managing director Magnus Nordin.
The B4EW4 well was spudded in November 2012 and was drilled to a final total
depth of 3,030 metres. The well was drilled on a dense grid of high quality 2D
seismic data approximately 20 km west of the Saiwan East oil field. Strong oil
shows were recorded during drilling in the Lower Al Bashir, Buah, Khufai and
Masirah Bay formations. The testing program was designed to evaluate the Khufai
and Buah reservoirs.
