Hiswah-9 was spudded on December 20, 2005 and is located approximately 275 metres west of the Hiswah-6 well. The well will be drilled in a similar fashion to the Hiswah-6,7 and 8 wells and is expected to be completed within the next two weeks.
Four containers shipped from Canada have arrived in Yemen containing all the pumps and related well production equipment for the Hiswah horizontal wells. Good progress is being made on the Hiswah Early Production Facility (EPF), which the Company anticipates completing, on schedule before the end of the first quarter.
At the present time, production from the Hiswah-6 well is running at about 2,000 bbls per day (bpd), net 1,000 bpd to the Company. This level of production is expected to be maintained for the next few weeks until de-bottlenecking is completed at the Safer unloading facility, on Block 18, when production will be increased gradually to an anticipated 10,000 bpd (net 5,000 bpd to Calvalley).
