The Yumna 1 well has tested at a production rate of 11 843 stock tank bpd through a 1 in. choke, with a crude oil gravity of 42° API. The Yumna Field is being further appraised with an extended early production test.

Further data evaluation and testing will be done and the findings will be released when completed.

We expect the high level of activity to continue as we move forward in the block. We thank the Ministry of Oil & Gas in Oman for their support and help in this endeavour.”
