LONDON, May 16 (Reuters) - Carlyle Group on Monday announced it had invested in Tunisia-focused oil and gas explorer Mazarine Energy which will also receive $500 million for further acquisitions in Europe and north Africa.

Mazarine, headed by Edward van Kersbergen, will focus on investments in "low-risk, near-term, conventional exploration, development and production opportunities in Europe, Africa and the broader Mediterranean region."
