Tethys Oil, a Swedish oil company which holds interests in the Sultanate of Oman’s Blocks 3 and 4, Block 49, Block 56 and Block 58, announces that its share of production from Blocks 3&4 during the third quarter 2022, before government take, amounted to 900,491 barrels of oil, corresponding to 9,788 barrels of oil per day. The net entitlement, Tethys Oil’s share of production after government take, amounted to 378,742 barrels of oil, corresponding to 42 per cent of the total production. A total of 420,474 barrels of oil were sold in the quarter with an achieved oil price of $107.2 per barrel.
Net entitlement is the share of production available for sale by Tethys Oil and is calculated monthly in accordance with the terms of the Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement (EPSA) for Blocks 3&4. The net entitlement will vary depending upon the level of production, oil price and recoverable costs incurred during the period.
The oil sales of 420,474 barrels in the third quarter 2022 reflects the July, August and September lifting nominations as well as the June nomination which was lifted in early July. Consequently, the third quarter 2022 achieved oil price reflects the Official Selling Price (OSP) of June, July, August and September 2022.
