Oman: DNO adds development well at West Bukha

DNO International ASA said the West Bukha-4 well on Block 8 offshore Oman has flowed at 7,000 b/d of 39° gravity oil and 15 MMcfd of gas on a 54/64-in. choke through a test separator.

West Bukha-4 will be connected to the pipeline within days and at the initial test rate is expected to nearly double oil production from West Bukha field to 15,000 b/d.

As the longest reach well drilled off Oman, West Bukha-4 at nearly 6,000 m targets an area not penetrated by previous drilling and is the second of a three-well drilling campaign initiated last year in Block 8.

DNO International has a 50% interest in and operates the block containing West Bukha and Bukha fields and their respective platforms. Korea’s LG International has the other 50% interest.
