Sudan: Funds sought for Block 14 rank exploration

Sirocco Energy Ltd., Perth, formerly Agri Energy Ltd., is attempting to raise funds for its share of the cost to explore the remote 100,000 sq km Block 14 in northwestern Sudan.

Statesman Resources Ltd., Vancouver, BC, operates Block 14, in which Sirocco has a 37.4% interest (OGJ Online, Nov. 9, 2012).

Block 14 lies south of the El Mesaha block in southwestern Egypt, where Petroceltic International, Beach Energy, Hellenic Petroleum, and Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration are drilling an exploratory well. The block also borders Libya.

Just south of Block 14, a well drilled by Sahara Oil Co. and the Al Qahtani joint venture had intermittent oil shows over a 300-m interval as the first exploratory penetration in the Mourdi subbasin.
