Riyadh: Saudi Arabia’s Aramco has discovered four new oil and gas wells in different parts of the country, Saudi Energy Minister Abdul Aziz bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz has said. New wells have been discovered in al-Rish, northwest of Dahran, al – Minahhas in Swara, southwest of Gawar, al – Shahba in northwestern Ghawar, and al – Ajramia, northwest of Rafah in the northern border region.

The minister said the Al Rish oil well, located northwest of the unconventional oil field of Dhahran, receives 4,452 barrels of fine crude oil and 3.2 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Al Minahaz receives 18 million cubic feet of natural gas and 98 barrels of concentrated oil per day. Al Shahba receives 32 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. The minister said Al Ajrama was showing a rate of 3850 barrels of crude oil per day.

The energy minister said the discovery of a new reservoir in the Al Reish field was of particular importance as it had already demonstrated the potential for light Arabian oil production in Baltouikh. The Minister said that Saudi Aramco is continuing its explorations to determine the area and size of the new areas and to estimate the amount of oil, gas and concentrated fuels in them.
