Maha Energy awards Drilling Contract to GBS in Oman

Maha Energy AB, Sweden announces the signing of a Letter of Award (LOA) with Global Business Services (GBS) in Muscat, Oman for the drilling of a minimum of six wells, on Block 70, onshore Oman. 

The LOA is binding and precedes a Drilling Contract which is expected to be finalized soon. The Drilling Rig, GBS-1 (formerly OGI-4) is a 1,000 hp super single top drive rig, built-in 2010, and is currently located in Muscat, Oman.

The rig will be prepared for the campaign and the expected mobilization is in June 2022. The drilling program will consist of two appraisal wells followed by four horizontal pilot production wells on the Mafraq structure.

Immediate plans for the Mafraq oilfield include obtaining important reservoir information to assist in developing a full Field Development Plan. Information that will be acquired in the first two appraisal wells includes, but is not limited to, the Oil Water Contact (OWC), petrophysical properties, cores, and identification of possible water disposal zones. After the two appraisal wells are drilled and completed, four horizontal pilot production wells will be drilled. These four wells will be completed with state-of-the-art PCP pumps from Canada and then placed on an extended well test to further ascertain oil productivity.
