DNO says the Nabrajah # 9 Sidetrack has reached its total depth of 2418 meters, some 213 meters into the Basement. It has been decided to perform two production tests in the well; one in the Basement interval and one in the overlaying Kohlan formation. The objectives of the testing are to evaluate the significance of oil shows and elevated gas readings which were recorded while drilling these intervals.

Elsewhere in Yemen, the Bayoot SW # 1 has reached its total depth of 3532 meters, some 613 meters into the Basement. An open hole test has been performed in the Basement interval, but the well failed to flow. Two more tests are planned in the well; one in a sandstone interval immediate overlaying the Basement and one on the Naifa carbonates. Oil shows and elevated gas reading were recorded while drilling these intervals. However, due to failure of some of the available testing equipment these two tests will be undertaken at a later stage. Timing is dependent on the schedule and priorities for rig utilization in Block 53. The rig will now move to the location of Tasour # 21, which is an appraisal well at the Tasour Field in Block 32.
