The extended well test of the Al Jumd discovery has a planned duration of three to six months with the objective to establish recoverable resources volumes and optimal production rates.

Production rates during the test is expected to vary as a result of test considerations and data gathering objectives. Initial export production is expected to be around 400 barrels of oil per day and shortly thereafter increase to 800 barrels per day. The oil will be transported approximately 15 kilometres by truck from the production facility at Al Jumd to Simsim, where the oil will be unloaded and measured by the fiscal meter before transferred into the national pipeline system.

The resulting oil entitlement from the extended well test will be sold and accounted for as Other Oil Revenue and is expected to have a positive impact on total revenues and cash flow. Production and operating costs relating to the extended well test are not included in the scope of Tethys Oil’s production and financial guidance for 2023.

The Al Jumd discovery

The Al Jumd discovery is located in the north-western corner of Block 56, for which Tethys Oil is the operator and has a 65 percent interest share.

In early 2022, Tethys Oil drilled the horizontal Al Jumd-2 with positive results and an initial flowrate of some 700 barrels of oil per day. Following the positive results of Al Jumd-2, the appraisal programme was expanded by an additional two wells, Al Jumd-3 and -4, in the third quarter 2022. Al Jumd-2, -3 and -4 were drilled in the structure’s north-western, north-eastern and southern areas respectively and cover a significant portion of the discovery.

Central Area

2,000 km2 of 3D seismic was acquired by Tethys Oil in 2022, covering more than a dozen leads identified on legacy 2D seismic. Processing has been completed and delivered to Tethys Oil and interpretation has commenced. The objective of interpretation is to identify and mature drillable prospects ahead of exploration drilling planned to start in the fourth quarter 2023.
