Block 60 Abu Tabul (ABB)

The Abu TabuI tight gas field in Block 60 (known as ABB) was first discovered by Petroleum Development Oman in 1998, and was appraised by BG International, from April 2006 to June 2010. OOCEP acquired the Block in March 2011. Subsequently, work began to develop the deep gas condensate Barik sandstone reservoir. This project is anticipated to deliver a plateau of 70 MMscf/d produced through the ABB Gas Processing Plant (GPP). The processed gas is currently delivered to the Government through a tie-in to the South Gas Line (SGL) and the condensate to the Main Oil Line (MOL) going to Qarn Alam booster station.

Musandam Gas Plant (MGP)

The Musandam Gas Plant (MGP), an oil and sour gas processing plant, is being constructed approximately 1 km north of the border with Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, in Tibat of the Musandam Province, Sultanate of Oman. When complete, the MGP will process well fluids from the existing Bukha fields offshore platforms. These well fluids will be transported from the platform to MGP through a newly installed subsea pipeline where they will be processed to produce sales quality gas, oil, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and sulphur.

Block 42

Block 42 has been identified as a suitable starting point to implement OOCEP’s goal to conduct exploration operations in Oman. The Block covers an area of approximately 25,600 square kilometers and comprises mainly the northeast coastal range of the Oman mountains and the basin immediately to their south (under Ramlat Sharqiya).
The presence of hydrocarbons has already been proven by previous exploration wells which report hydrocarbon shows in several reservoir intervals

Mukhaizna

The Government of Oman signed a production-sharing agreement with a consortium of oil companies for the development of the Mukhaizna oil field, on 21st June 2005. The duration of the production-sharing agreement is 30 years from the handover date (1st September 2005). The project has drilled more than 2,400 wells through the end of 2014. Production has ramped up from 10 Thousand Barrels per Day (MBOPD) in 2005 to 120 Thousand Barrels of Oil per Day (MBOPD) by 2012 and remains higher than 120 MBOPD since then. Total oil production during 2014 was 44.35 million barrels.

Karim

The Karim Small Fields (KSF) is a cluster of 18 fields located in PDO-Block 6 concession area. OOCEP holds a 25% stake in the service contract, while MEDCO, the field operator holds 75%. The service contract was renewed in 2015 for a period of 25 years. The objective of the KSF service contract is to enhance oil production from several marginal oil fields that are mostly sandstone reservoirs (Haima and Haushi). Efforts are aimed at increasing oil production by infill drilling, improved well and reservoir management (WRM) and connecting undeveloped small new fields. More than 240 new infill wells were drilled since 2007.

Dunga

The Dunga Oil Field is an onshore field located 50 km to the north of the city of Aktau in western Kazakhstan. Production from the field is governed by a 30-year Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) which was signed in May 1994. The field is being jointly developed by Oman Oil Company Ltd. (OOCL, an OOC subsidiary), the Portuguese investment fund Partex and the operator Maersk Oil. The presence of hydrocarbons in the field were first identified in 1966. Operations under the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) got underway in 1998. The first phase of the FDP was completed in 2009, comprising the drilling of eight vertical wells and six horizontal wells. The Phase II of the FDP is ongoing, with construction activities underway to accommodate anticipated growth in oil production.

PROJECT DETAILS

Pearls

The Pearls is an offshore project located in the northern part of the Kazakhstan section of the Caspian Sea. The contract area covers 895 m2, with an average water depth of 8-10 m, which is the maximum depth for the northern section of the Caspian Sea. The Pearls project stipulates the geological exploration and development of four subsalt structures – Khazar, Auezov, Naryn and Tulpar. The Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) was signed in December 2005 with a 35-year duration. Under the PSA, the contractor party is comprised of Shell EP Offshore Ventures Limited (“SEPOV”), KazMunayTeniz (“KMT”) and Oman Pearls Company Ltd. (OPCL).
In 2007, the first exploration well was drilled which yielded a hydrocarbon discovery in the Khazar field and two additional appraisal wells to test hydrocarbon reserves. Another three exploration wells have been drilled in other structures in the area, one of which tested hydrocarbons in the Auezov prospect. A total of 7 wells were drilled at the Pearls area.
