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 Nordin.
