Oilex Provides Operations Report in Oman

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/18/2008, Location: Middle East

Drilling is anticipated to commence today at the Ghadaq-1 well, the second of a 3 well exploration program in Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement Block 56, Oman and follows the successful Sarha-1 well. Drilling operations are planned to take 18 days and total depth is expected to be reached at a depth of approximately 1600 metres. The well will evaluate the prolific Permo-Carboniferous reservoir interval which is a major productive horizon across Oman. In addition the well will be deepened to intersect the prospective Cambrian Huqf Formation which has been found oil-bearing in adjacent wells.

Sarha-1 demonstrated multiple pay zones and it is probable that similar zones are likely to occur also in Ghadaq-1. Potential oil resource-in-place estimates of 5 - 30 mmstboip (14 mean) plus large Huqf potential are based on mapping of a single potential 10m thick reservoir unit in the shallower Permo-Carboniferous objective. No estimates have been made for the potential volumes in the Huqf Formation deeper objective below about 1500 metres or for the potential of multiple reservoir units at the shallower level.
