DNO International, an oil and gas company headquartered in Norway, has announced that the company has been working vigorously to bring the West Bukha field in Oman’s offshore Block 8 to production.
In Block 8 located in the Strait of Hormuz, DNO has addressed a blockage since late March in the 12-inch pipeline connecting the West Bukha and Bukha platforms by replacing a 4.3 kilometer section of the line.
West Bukha oil and gas production is expected to resume by the end of the month with the two previously producing wells joined by a third newly completed development well, accelerating the recovery of deferred production. A fourth West Bukha development well is progressing according to plan and is drilling ahead at 3,272 meters.
The West Bukha volatile oil field was developed with a 6 slot unmanned platform and came onto production in 2009.
