Petroleum Development Oman Services (PDO) signed its first commercial contract with Tethys Oil Oman Onshore Limited involving the 3D seismic acquisition of Block 56, according to a report from the Oman Observer.
Worth more than $14 million, this agreement involves the production of high-quality 3D seismic images for areas operated by Tethys Oil Oman Onshore, including the eastern flank of South Oman and tertiary basins in Block 56.
On this occasion, PDO Managing Director Steve Phimister said, “Signing this contract with Tethys Oil Oman Onshore is a great milestone for PDO-S achieved in a relatively short time after its establishment. It is a true demonstration of how PDO-S is delivering its key value drivers by filling supply chain gaps in the oil and gas market in Oman.”
For his part, Tethys Oil Oman Onshore Limited Managing Director Dr. Fredrik Robelius, commented “We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with PDO-S that offers state of the art technology to help us unlock the great potential in block 56.”
It is worth noting that this contract will encourage more cooperation between PDO-S and other Omani oil and gas operators in different applications.
