RAK Petroleum to Farm-Out Oman Block

RAK Petroleum announced the farm-out of a 50 percent interest in Block 47 onshore the Sultanate of Oman to Repsol Exploracion, S.A., subject to Government approval. RAK Petroleum will retain operatorship of the Block.

"Repsol is a partner of choice for RAK Petroleum, bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to this project," noted Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani, Chairman and CEO of RAK Petroleum.

The partnership plans to drill the Zad prospect with the well expected to spud in October 2010. The well is estimated to take three months to drill and is targeting the Amin sandstone reservoir, similar to the Kauther field discovered by Petroleum Development of Oman to the southeast of the Block.

"While the Zad prospect is purely an exploration play, it is conveniently located close to both gas and oil pipelines and presents a favourable development opportunity if a discovery is made," said Mossavar-Rahmani.
