Algeria: E.On, Sonatrach to appraise Berkine basin discoveries

By OGJ editors

E.On E&P and Sonatrach have made further oil and gas discoveries in the Rhourde Yacoub license area in the Berkine basin in eastern Algeria.

NEY-1, seventh exploratory well on the Rhourde Yacoub Block 405a license 250 km southeast of Hassi Messaoud, found oil and gas, said E.ON E&P without providing test details.

E.On, operator with 49% interest, said it will drill several wells in the next 2 years to appraise the extent of the discoveries. The company said it and Sonatrach have made “several encouraging discoveries” since being awarded the block in the December 2008 license round (OGJ Online, Dec. 16, 2008).
