Oman: Thamama horizontal penetration planned

By OGJ editors

DNO International ASA, Oslo, has drilled the West Bukha-5 development well on Block 8 in the Persian Gulf offshore Oman to 200 m above the top of the target Lower Cretaceous Thamama reservoir.

The company plans to drill into the top of Thamama, set 7-in. liner, and drill a 600-m horizontal section in Thamama. DNO is operator of 277 sq km Block 8 with 50% interest, and LG International Corp. has 50%.

Meanwhile, production from the company’s two operated fields is temporarily shut in as a result of blockage in the pipeline between the Bukha and West Bukha production platforms that occurred in routine pigging operations. Efforts are under way to resolve this situation, but total downtime may be as much as 4 weeks.
