Oilex Hits Oil and Gas at Sarha-1 in Oman
Oilex Ltd advises that the Sarha-1 exploration well, the first of three exploration wells that will be drilled in a continuous sequence by Oilex in the Block 56 Production Sharing Contract Area, Sultanate of Oman is drilling ahead in 81/2" hole below 1,673 meters in the Cambrian Huqf Formation.
The primary and secondary objectives penetrated in the Permian to Cambrian interval exhibited oil shows and increased gas readings from drill cuttings.
