Tethys Oil Makes Discovery at B4EW6 Well in Oman

Tethys Oil AB, a Swedish energy company focused on exploration and production of oil and natural gas, reported Wednesday that the exploration well B4EW6 drilled on a previously undrilled structure onshore Oman has tested flows in excess of 2,200 barrels of oil per day (bopd) on a 32/64 inch choke from the Lower Buah formation. B4EW6 was drilled approximately 8 miles (13 kilometers) south of the B4EW4 discovery in Block 4. The new B4EW6 well constitutes the best flows encountered from the Lower Buah outside the B4EW4 area so far. The well is hooked up to the production system to undergo a long term production test.

“We are very happy that the Lower Buah has delivered again. B4EW6 looks similar to B4EW4. As data comes in, we will learn more, but we are hopeful it could prove as prolific as B4EW4,” comments Tethys Oil’s managing director Magnus Nordin.

Tethys Oil AB, through its wholly owned subsidiary Tethys Oil Block 3 and 4 Ltd, has a 30 percent interest in Blocks 3 and 4. Partners are Mitsui E&P Middle East B.V. with 20 percent and the operator CC Energy Development S.A.L. (Oman branch) holding the remaining 50 percent.
