COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- Qatar Petroleum and Maersk Oil have agreed on a plan for development of the block 5 extension area.

In 2004, Maersk Oil was awarded an extension area to block 5 offshore Qatar to appraise development opportunities.

The 2008 Field Development Plan comprises drilling of up to six horizontal wells from the Al Shaheen field "I" location in block 5 into the extension area. Oil production from the extension area is expected to reach a level of up to 6,000 b/d in early 2010.
