Abu Dhabi Exploration

In 2013 OMV signed an agreement with ADNOC to jointly explore the Eastern onshore region of Abu Dhabi towards Oman. As an operator, OMV is in a pioneering role, as this is the first pure exploration contract in Abu Dhabi since the mid-1960s. Our innovative exploration program successfully completed a 3D & 2D seismic acquisition campaign in February 2015; the 3D-survey covers about 3,000 km2 in a predominantly desert environment.

The first OMV operated exploration well was spud in December 2016. It reached a total depth of 16,000 feet (4,880 m) in March 2017, the well was tested for gas in two potential reservoir formations and then plugged and suspended in early July 2017.
