DNO announces update on drilling activities in the Republic of Yemen-Spotlight

DNO International ASA has tested 5,900 barrels per day of 36º API crude oil from the Salsala-1 exploration well drilled in Block 32, the Republic of Yemen.

Salsala-1 was directionally drilled to a total depth of 4,147 meters and encountered oil shows in the Shuqra formation which was perforated over a 32 meter interval, acidized and tested. The well flowed naturally at an initial rate of 5,900 barrels per day before being choked back to 3,400 barrels per day due to limited surface storage capacity.

The well was spudded in July 2013 and the cost to drill, complete and test was $10 million. Block 32 contains two producing fields, Godah and Tasour, whose gross output currently averages 2,500 barrels per day.
