PVT oil samples were acquired during wireline logging in the Lower Al Bashir, Buah, and Masirah Bay formations. The test program is designed to evaluate the Khufai and Buah reservoirs, said Tethys Oil AB, which has a 30% interest in blocks 3 and 4.

CC Energy Development is operator with 50% interest, and Mitsui E&P Middle East BV has 20%.
