DNO ASA has reported that the Hayah-1 exploration well in Oman's onshore Block 36 failed to encounter hydrocarbons other than minor gas shows and will be plugged and abandoned.
The well, drilled in the Rub al-Khali basin in the southwestern part of the country, reached a total depth of 3010 m and penetrated the three target reservoirs, of which two had good reservoir quality.
DNO will incorporate the Hayah-1 well information into further evaluation of the block.
DNO operates Block 36 with a 75% operated interest; Allied Petroleum Exploration Inc. (APEX) holds the remaining 25%.
DNO ASA is a Norwegian oil and gas operator focused on the Middle East and North Africa.
