Yes, it seems it should be, about 300km East.
I still think "Seiyun" would be correct if it was.

Any issue from the genuine state of Upper Yafa
dated after 1967 is bogus,
It was part of the South Arabian Protectorate and
absorbed (1967) into the PR of Southern Yemen
(later became the PDRY). In 1990 North and
South Yemen merged to form the Republic of
Genuine postal service was short lived in 1967,
but the first Upper Yafa issue did see postal use
for a few months.http://www.geocities.com/uy77sv/UY-1967-defins.htm
I have a genuine commercial cover buried somewhere
in my hoard of covers.
On September 30, 1967, the Sultanate of Upper Yafa,
the only western state under the Protectorate not to
accept integration in the Federation, issued a series
of 10 stamps from 5 to 500 fils (airmail from 75 to
500 fils) depicting a map of the state and its flag,
as well as the state's coat-of-arms.
At the same time, the forces of the National Liberation
Front had succeeded in pushing aside the Liberation
Front of Occupied South Yemen, taking control of the
small sultanate of 600 square miles.
With American assistance, the Sultanate later (1967)
issued 12 thematic series representing a total of
72 stamps. The large majority of these thematic
vignettes were never used for valid postage.http://i19.ebayimg.com/04/i/000/77/e0/833d_1_b.JPGhttp://www.filkomstamps.com/060319le034.JPGhttp://www.geocities.com/uy77sv/UY-Stamps-1967.htm
Many years later, (1998-2005) a private individual in N.Z.
took the name Sultanate of Upper Yafa to create a
cinderella state with new "stamps". The currency was
in Omani Riyals.http://www.geocities.com/uy77sv/http://www.sedang.hm/Upperyafa/Stamps00.htm
