DNO International, the Norwegian oil and gas company, announced that production from Block 8 offshore wells in the Sultanate has climbed to a record daily rate of 20,000 barrels of oil and condensate and 60 million cubic feet of gas following completion of a two-well drilling programme in the West Bukha field.
These rates represent a near tripling of oil and condensate production and a near doubling of gas production from the block.
The wells have reached the limits of the existing onshore processing facilities and have been choked back, said a company release. Block 8 is one of seven Middle East North Africa licences acquired by DNO International.
through the merger with RAK Petroleum PCL earlier this year. Two other acquired blocks are located in adjacent waters offshore the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.
