Drilling Activity Summary


Tethys Oil is drilling an onshore Oman exploration well in Block 49 in the Governorates of Dhofar in the Wilayat Province of Muqhsin. The #1-Thameen has a planned depth of 4,000 m. It will be targeting Late Ordovician Hasirah Sandstone at approximately 3,500 m with a secondary target in the mid-Ordovician Saih Nihayda Sandstone at approximately 3,700 m (true vertical). The venture will also test the shallower Gharif Sandstone. Nine exploration wells have been drilled in the block by several operators and many have encountered oil shows. Stockholm-based Tethys holds a 50% interest in the license.
