Daleel Petroleum operates main five oil fields in Block 5: Daleel, Shadi, Bushra, Mazoon & Furat. Daleel field is the main production field with the highest porosity and permeability. Our most important reservoirs are Natih and Shuaiba. Our business is based on an agreement with the Government of the Sultanate of Oman, represented by the Ministry of Oil & Gas
Our success in increasing production from Block 5 is clearly demonstrated by the massive increase in oil production since 2002. The daily average production rate increased from around 5,000 bpd in 2002 to over 53,000 bpd in 2018, most of which was then exported to the Main Oil Line (MOL).
The extraction of oil from deep within the earth, also releases natural gas that is trapped in the ground. This released gas was usually flared-off into the atmosphere. Since 2003, in an effort to minimise the environmental impact of our operation – and to enhance the economic value of our assets, Daleel has established gas station Train 1 to convert natural gas into Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Natural Gas Liquefied (NGL). This station is equipped with the latest technology and is run by a team of specialists.
As part of our 'Towards Zero Flaring' initiative, gas flaring is significantly reduced from Block 5 after commissioning of Gas Train 2 in 2017. Flaring is continuously monitored on a daily basis and necessary steps are taken to reduce the process flare to minimum practical levels.
