– OMV AG has cased two more gas-condensate discoveries on the Nawara production concession in southern Tunisia, bringing the total to nine discoveries, and development studies are under way.

The chance of making further commercial discoveries in the concession and the surrounding Jenein Sud exploration permit has therefore greatly increased, OMV said.

Khouloud-1 reached a TD of 4,042 m, and Benefsej-1, the best well to date in the concession, went to 4,223 m. Both discovered a combined total of more than 60 m of net gas-condensate pay in the stacked sandstones of the Silurian Acacus and Tannezuft formations.

Good quality sandstone reservoirs are now proven across the entire Nawara concession and this is encouraging for undrilled features, OMV said. Gas-condensate was confirmed by an extensive and successful downhole measurement and sampling program.

OMV and ETAP each holds a 50% interest in the concession 700 km south of Tunis.
