In conjunction with Tethys Oil Oman Ltd.’s Block 49 acquisition, Oman’s Ministry of Oil & Gas has signed agreements on two additional onshore blocks and one underexplored offshore block (OGJ Online, Nov. 13, 2017). Eni SPA and Oman Oil Co. Exploration & Production (OOCEP) will explore Block 52, which covers 90,760 sq km offshore southern Oman in 10-3,000 m of water. The underexplored block extends from the Al Wusta region toward Dhofar, encompassing the Hallaniyat Islands.
Devon Energy Corp. expects to increase net production in its Oklahoma STACK development to more than 120,000 boe/d by yearend, bringing an estimated 25 wells online in the fourth quarter. The operator’s Faith Marie 1-H is the most recent well completed and Devon reported the well produced a 24-hr peak rate of 5,100 boe/d. The well’s 9,000-ft lateral is projected to produce a 30-day average of 4,600 boe/d, 65% of which is oil.
Tethys Oil AB has acquired the 15,449-sq-km Block 49 onshore Oman. The company said it has access to 11,000 km of 2D seismic collected by previous operators and cores from nine historical wells, including Dauka-1, which was the first well drilled in Oman in 1955. Several of the cores show traces of oil, the company said. The award, to be signed on Nov. 14, covers an initial 3-year exploration period with an option for a 3-year extension.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
