Oil Search Tests Oil at Al Meashar-1 in Yemen

AWE reported that an open hole drill stem test over the interval 3,125 to 3,660 meters measured depth in the Al Meashar-1 well in Block 7, Yemen, commenced on March 18. The well has flowed oil and drilling fluids to surface at unstabilized rates. A large amount of drilling fluid was lost to the formation during drilling and this is still being recovered. The testing program is continuing.

Operated by Oil Search, the Al Meashar-1 well is targeting fractured basement rock in a structure defined by a 3D survey acquired in 2008.
