Yemen: Calvalley starts oil flow from two fields

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 13
– Calvalley Petroleum Inc., Calgary, began oil production from Ras Nowmah and Al Roidhat fields on Block 9 into the Masila Export Pipeline System under a temporary arrangement using the Block 51 metering system.

All of Calvalley’s blended crude oil will receive the Masila Blend price, which is benchmarked to Brent crude pricing. The company’s own metering system is expected to become available in May 2011.

Despite the unsettled security environment in Yemen, Calvalley continues its activities as close to normal as possible with two drilling rigs and one service rig in operation.

Completion of the TOF is a major milestone in Calvalley’s program of increasing production, by bringing significant volumes of shut-in production on line, takes advantage of higher oil prices and market accessibility provided by the MEPS
