Testing operations on Block 15 onshore Oman have resumed. A jet pump has been installed in the JAS-2 well in an attempt to clear the well from water an enable it to flow hydrocarbons. The Block 15 license has been extended for three years, until October 2014.

The JAS -2 well, drilled in 2008, showed the same log response while drilling as the JAS-1 drilled in 2007. Whereas the JAS-1 well flowed reasonable quantities of gas and condensate, the JAS -2 well however, tested only water. Subsequent analysis of JAS -2, including a comprehensive logging program in 2010, suggests that the water comes from a system of fractures located at the far end of the 927 metres horizontal section. Indications are that the fracture system is limited with finite volumes of water. The test now being conducted, will attempt to pump off the water and enable the well to flow hydrocarbons.

The Block 15 license has been extended until October 2014 with a minimum work programme consisting of among others additional seismic studies and the drilling of one more well. Tethys has a 40 per cent interest of Block 15. Odin Energi A/S holds the remaining 60 percent and is operator.
