DNO Begins Production Testing at Nabrajah #9

Nabrajah #9 has been drilled to a depth of 2,648 meters, which is approximately 470 meters into the Basement. A production test of the Basement section drilled to date will now be undertaken.

As previously reported, strong to very strong oil shows and gas readings have been observed in several intervals while drilling the Basement section.

The significance of these oil shows will now be evaluated through a production testing. The forward program for Nabrajah #9 will be decided based on the results from the test.

Nabrajah #9 is located 2.7 km north west of the Basement oil discovery well, Nabrajah #5. The objective of Nabrajah #9 is to appraise the Basement oil accumulation and to provide oil production from the fractured Basement reservoir.

The participants in Nabrajah #9 are DNO as operator with 56.67%; Oil Search (Yemen) Limited with 28.33% and The Yemen Company with a 15% carried interest.
