– Dana Gas Egypt plans to test a new zone in Al Baraka field on Kom Ombo Block 2 in southern Egypt.

Preliminary analyses of cores from the Al Baraka-6 well, TD 5,035 ft in the Six Hills formation, reveal an estimated 30 ft of net pay in the Cretaceous Abu Ballas formation and 75 ft in the underlying Cretaceous Six Hills F formation.

The estimated Six Hills F pay shows significant thickening and contain two zones, the upper zone which shows lateral communication with Al Baraka 2 and the lower is a new zone. Completion and testing operations are planned on the Six Hills F lower zone. The Six Hills E sands appear absent in this well.

Dana Gas cut nine cores totaling 600 ft to help in design of a frac program of existing producing wells and future wells. From Al Baraka-6, first of a 10-well 2010 program, the rig will move to Al Baraka-5.

Interests in the concession are Dana Gas Egypt 50% and Sea Dragon Energy Inc., Calgary, 50%.
