The Cenomanian Natih B formation was targeted as a Liquid Rich Shales (LRS) objective in 2011 to 2012 by the Exploration directorate in Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). Two dedicated wells were drilled in the North of Oman, to prove the presence of oil mature, saturated Natih B source rock with the potential to mobilized oil to surface. The Natih B LRS play has been proven to work technically (contains mature source rocks that are saturated with moveable hydrocarbons).
