DNO ASA, the Norwegian oil and gas operator, has recently announced that the Hayah-1 exploration well in Oman's onshore Block 36 failed to encounter hydrocarbons other than minor gas shows.

The company says the well will be plugged and abandoned.

The well, drilled in the Rub al-Khali basin in the southwestern part of the Sultanate, reached a total depth of 3,010 metres 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%.
