PA Resources has authorized new measures to extend the life of the Didon field offshore Tunisia.
These include installation scheduled this spring of an electric submersible pump in a previously shut-in production well, and drilling of an infill well during the fall.
Last May the company agreed to farm out 70% of its Tunisian offshore interests and to transfer operatorship to EnQuest. The parties have started the notification and approval process with the Tunisian government authorities, but due to the country’s political situation the transaction will not be completed until end-March.
PAR’s other offshore concession contains part of the Zarat field, which overlaps into an adjoining license. The southern and northern tract partners are working to resolve legal and commercial issues for a Zarat Unitized Unit Operating Agreement (UUOA).
