United highlighted the rapid pace of progress at Abu Sennan where the ASD-1X well was drilled as recently as April.

 “In tandem with exploration success in Abu Sennan, the encouraging result from the ASH-1ST2 workover will provide a further boost to production, and will also help increase our understanding of the ASH Field.”

Larkin also highlighted that drilling is presently underway on the Al Jahraa-8 development well with results pending in due course.
