Tunisia: Mazarine spuds Chouchet El Atrous-1 well in Zaafrane permit

Mazarine Energy, a private international upstream oil and gas exploration and production company, has announced that its subsidiary, Mazarine Energy Tunisia, and partner ETAP (Entreprise Tunisienne d’Activités Pétrolières) have commenced a two-well drilling campaign in the Zaafrane permit in central Tunisia.

The first well, Cat-1, was spudded on 10 February 2015. CTF (Compagnie Tunisienne de Forage) has been contracted for the drilling campaign. The wells, targeting the Ordovician, will be drilled to a depth of 3,900m. The campaign is expected to last up to six months.

If the well encounters commercial hydrocarbons, Mazarine Energy plans to develop the field within two years.
