Yemen: OMV to add pipeline at Habban oil field

By OGJ editors
– OMV AG said its operated Habban oil field on Block S2 in western Yemen’s Shabwa Province averaged a net 6,600 b/d of oil equivalent in 2010, up from 6,300 boe/d in 2009.

The company drilled eight development wells in the field last year. The project also consists of central processing facilities with 30,000 boe/d of gross capacity and a 120-km oil export pipeline scheduled to come on stream in 2012.

To strengthen its acreage position around Habban, OMV acquired exploration rights to nearby blocks 70 and 86. The Tagina South-1 exploratory well was dry.

OMV initially credited the 2005 Habban discovery with 50 million bbl of proved reserves and 170 million bbl of proved and probable reserves (OGJ Online, Jan. 19, 2006).
