Maurel & Prom announced the report of the last update with the Omko-1 well of Onal field launch and Evidence of oil on Omal-1D in Gabon.

Onal field (85%) in Gabon
The gas pipeline designed to supply the Onal facilities in Gabon will come on stream as from December 23, 2008. Testing and receipt of the facilities will be able to begin from this date.

In view of the Christmas holiday period and technical uncertainties, this will no doubt take longer than originally planned, which prevents the Group from issuing a firm date during January for the launch of production on the Onal field.

All commercial and oil and gas transport agreements have been signed. Evacuation of production from the Onal field will initially be limited to 10,000 b/d for a 3-month period.

Following the July 2008 discovery, miscibility tests carried out on the oil produced by the Omko-1 well with that produced by Onal and Total are positive.

Lying of the oil pipeline between the Omko field and the Onal production centre will be completed by the end of January. The Group has been granted a long-term testing permit for the Omko-1 well, for which production will be subject to a firm agreement on the evacuation of oil produced with Total.

An application for an Exclusive Operating Permit will be filed once two Omko field appraisal wells have been drilled, drillings that are scheduled to take place during the first quarter of 2009.

Omal-1D well in Gabon
On the Omoueyi (M&P 100%) operating permit, the NíZamo-1 well has encountered the expected reservoirs in the aquifer and the well has been abandoned. Analysing this geological phenomenon will require drilling a new exploration well a few kilometres away from the NíZamo-1 well.

The Omal-1D (Alonha-A) operating well has encountered the expected impregnated reservoirs over a distance of 38 m of which 8.4 m is viable. This well will be tested with a view to potentially launching production later once there is sufficient processing capacity.
