Eastern exploration well suspended for further study


                        
The exploration well LE-1 in the eastern part of Block 4 onshore the Sultanate
of Oman has been suspended to allow for further studies in the future. An oil
sample has been recovered from the well, indicating the presence of medium
light oil, which suggests that a petroleum system may be active also in the
eastern region of Block 4.


With no previous well data in this area, LE-1 has given important new data of
the area’s lithology which will necessitate a reinterpretation of the seismic
data previously collected.

The well has been suspended to allow for further study in the future. Once the
seismic reinterpretation is completed the work programme for the area will be
assessed also for other well locations.

Tethys Oil AB, through its wholly owned subsidiary Tethys Oil Block 3 and 4
Ltd, has a 30 per cent interest in Blocks 3 and 4. Partners are Mitsui E&P
Middle East B.V. with 20 per cent and the operator CC Energy Development S.A.L.
(Oman branch) holding the remaining 50 per cent.
