Masirah Oil Ltd has commissioned a new 3D seismic survey in Block 50 Oman. The seismic survey, will be undertaken by Dolphin Geophysical ASA with its vessel, Artemis Arctic. The seismic survey commenced in November and is scheduled to be completed within approximately 45 days following mobilization.
Hans Lidgren, chairman of Masirah, said, “The data collected will help increase our understanding of the geology in the area and provide more information for the use of Rex Virtual Drilling to select prospects for our planned multi-well exploration drilling program in 2015 and 2016.”
Dan Brostrom, executive chairman of Rex International Holding, said, “We are pleased to note that plans for Block 50 Oman are on track. Given that Block 50 Oman covers a large area of close to 6,563 square miles (17,000 square kilometers), information from the seismic survey will value-add to the extended well testing and multi-well campaign targeted to be carried out in the block in 2015 and 2016.”
