The Attila license area is located in the Eastern part of the oil and gas producing Paris basin adjacent to the Gaz de France operated Trois – Fontaines natural gas field. The license is valid for a period of five years and has a financial work commitment of €1,162,000, of which Tethys' share amounts to €520,000.
Natural gas is the exploration target in this part of the basin. This potential is demonstrated by the Trois-Fontaines gas field and the undeveloped Montplonne gas discovery, which is located within the license. The Trois-Fontaines gas field – discovered in 1982 by Gaz de France – is located immediately to the west of the license and has an estimated total recovery of 105 BCF (3 BCM).
Five potential prospects (leads) have been identified within the license area. Estimated drilling depths are from 1,400 to 1,500 meters. Technical work has already started and includes the following:
Next the seismic data will be interpreted and mapped on a computer workstation.
The seismic reprocessing and resulting new interpretation are important steps (points) in the work program. These allow us to image and map subsurface geology better than previously possible because of advances in computer processing power and techniques. The resulting subsurface maps will be able to delineate the potential gas prospects aiming to upgrade as many leads as possible to drillable prospects and then identify a suitable location to drill an exploration well.
