Block 15 is located in Northern Oman in the Foreland sub-basin and is just under 1400 sq kms in area. The most prospective reservoir horizons are expected to be the Natih and Shuaiba formations in the permits located immediately south of Block 15. Three wells have been drilled in Block 15 - Wadi Saylah #1 and Jebel Aswad #1&2. All wells encountered hydrocarbons. The permit is covered by 2D seismic with a 3D seismic survey over the Jebel Aswad/Wadi Saylah area.
Jebel Aswad has produced hydrocarbons on extended well tests in both Jebel Aswad #1&2. HCF is currently undertaking an extensive subsurface evaluation of the Jebel Aswad area. This study is designed to improve our confidence in the resource potential of the structure in preparation for drilling later in the year. The primary goal of the next Jebel Aswad well is to demonstrate commerciality.
HCF are also evaluating new leads and prospects as well as looking at the potential of deeper reservoirs within the known structures. Later this year HCF will commence a study to assess the permits unconventional potential.Contact Us
