– OMV AG reported that a seventh well in the last 4 years has encountered hydrocarbons on the operated Nawara production concession in southern Tunisia.

Ritma-1 is a gas-condensate discovery, having cut 28 m of net hydrocarbon pay in stacked sandstones of the Silurian Acacus and Tannezuft formations. TD is 4,035 m. The well is the third in the 2009-2010 campaign to identify gas-condensate resources for the planned Nawara development project.

OMV said reservoir thickness is at the high end of expectations, similar to the Fella-1 discovery, but it did not specify the thickness. It spudded the next well, Khouloud-1, on May 25. OMV and Tunisia’s state ETAP each holds 50% interest in the concession, 700 km south of Tunis.
