The Norwegian oil and gas company said in a statement that West Bukha-4 will be connected to the export pipeline system within days and, at the initial test rates, is expected to nearly double current oil production from the West Bukha field to 15,000 bpd.

Since West Bukha-4 is the longest reach well drilled off Oman at nearly 6,000 metres, it targets an area not penetrated by previous drilling and is the second of a three-well drilling campaign initiated last year in Block 8.

DNO holds a 50 per cent interest in the block, which it operates and contains the West Bukha and Bukha fields and their respective platforms. Korea's LG International holds the remaining 50 per cent interest.
