Eni Successfully Drills New Exploration Wells in Tunisia
Eni successfully continues its exploration campaign in Tunisia's Sahara region, positively completing drilling tests of two exploration wells, Karma-1 in the Adam concession, 700 km south of Tunis, and Nakhil-1, in the Bordj el Kadra permit, located close to the Eni-operated plant for treatment and production of oil.
Eni has carried out as operator drilling activities and tests at Karma-1 in partnership with Tunisia's state company Etap, Pioneer Natural Resources and Talisman Resources. The well has been drilled to a 3,617-meter total depth and production tests show an overall capacity of more than 4,000 barrels of oil per day, confirming the great potential of the Adam concession.
Eni is operator at Nakhil-1 with a 50% interest, together with Pioneer Natural Resources and Talisman Resources. The well has been drilled to a 3,929-meter total depth. Production tests confirmed the presence of good quality oil. The well is now on stream with a production of 1,200 barrels of oil per day.
Eni's first exploration & production activities in Tunisia started in 1963. Eni's current equity production of oil and gas in Tunisia is some 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) confirming Eni's industry leadership position in the country.
