Yemen: Al Meashar appraisal yields modest rate

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 12
– A group led by Oil Search Ltd., Sydney, gauged oil at a rate of 145 b/d on a drillstem test of the Al Meashar-2 well on Block 7 in Yemen’s Shabwah basin.

The company used a jet pump to test the basement target interval and then shut in the well for further build-up tests. It will then be suspended.

The well was drilled from the existing pad of the early 2010 Al Meashar-1 discovery well using managed pressure drilling to minimize damage from drilling fluids in the reservoir (OGJ Online, May 27, 2010).
