DNO's Yemen Well Flows at 5,900 BOPD

change text size

Norway's DNO International reported Wednesday that its Salsala-1 exploration well onshore Yemen has flow tested 5,900 barrels per day of 36-degree API crude oil.

The well encountered oil shows in the Shuqra formation after being drilled to a total depth of 13,600 feet. After flowing at the initial rate of 5,900 bopd it was choked back to 3,400 bopd due to limited surface storage capacity, DNO said.

The well is located on Block 32, which already contains two producing fields – Godah and Tasour – the gross output of which currently averages 2,500 barrels per day.

"Yemen continues to be an important focus area for DNO International and this discovery reflects our commitment to continue to build on our in-country knowledge, expertise and investments," DNO Executive Chairman Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani said, adding that the Salsala-1 well will be placed on an extended production test and that an appraisal well is scheduled in early 2014 as part of a fast-track development of this discovery.
 
DNO International holds a 38.95-percent interest in and operates Block 32.
