The well’s bottom hole location is close to that of Manora-8ST.

On 13 June 2018 at 23:30 hours WST, the MNA-20 well reached final total depth of 2415 m MDRT. Petrophysical interpretation of well logs shows a total net pay of 268 ft. The main objective 490-60 sand is well developed with 79 ft pay, similar to the Manora-8ST well. Four sands at the 500 level encountered 169 ft net pay. One sand at the 300 level encountered 20 ft pay close to the downdip extent of the reservoir.
