DNO ASA - New well in Tasour field, Yemen

The Tasour # 11 well was completed as an oil well and placed in production on the 29th October at an initial rate of approximately 6,000 barrels of oil per day and some 3,000 barrels of water per day. It is expected that the oil rate will decrease and the water rate increase over time in line with the other producing wells in the field.
Tasour # 11 is located in the western extension of the Tasour field. Further development  drilling in the western extension is planned for 2004. The  remapping of the Tasour field now shows a possible eastern extension which also will be tested in 2004.
