  • Tunisia: Oil & Gaz

    The state own company Entreprise Tunisienne des Activites petrolieres (ETAP) has signed up international partners for twp prospection permits and an exploration permit as part of its drive to accelerate the development of its upstream oil and gas sector.

    A consortium of ETAP and US-Based Rigo oil signed at the end of February a four-year permit to explore the 1,616 square-kilometer Bazma field near Kelibi. The permit will be 100% operated by ETAP; Rigo will invest a minimum of $3.5 million and undertake a works programme including the drilling of one exploration well and the processing and interpretation of existing seismic data.

    Two offshore prospection licences in the north have been awarded to a consortium of ETAP; the US' Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and PetroCanada. The first two year prospecting licence covers the 7,648 sqaure kilometer Bechateur field in which the operator Anadarko will invest at least $2.84 million. The minimum work programme includes the acquisition and processing of 1,000 kilometres of 2D seismic* and the reporocessing and interpretation of existing seismic data.

    The consortium has also been awarded a two year prospecting permit for the 7,476 square kilometer Cap Serrat field. Anadarko will invest a minimum of $1.17 million to reprocess and interpret exisiting seismic data and acquire 500 kilometres of 2D seismic. ETAP will have a 50% interest in both permits with Anadarko holding 33.3% and PetroCanada 16.7%.

    * 2D seismic: is often the first of the techniques helping reducing the risk involved in oil and gaz exploration and production to be used in the process. it helps in optimally lo*****g potential reservoirs, confirming the presence of hydrocarbons, improving imaging of the reservoir, estimating reserves and defining and monitoring a depletion strategy.

    En continuant ma recherche sur le net; j'ai trouve ce ci:

    * La Tunisie fait figure de parent pauvre par rapport a ses deux voisins. Ce pays possee des gisements d'hydrocarbures, offshore dans le Golfe de Gabes, et onshore au sud du pays.
    ==> esperant que ces nouveaux prospections entrprise pa l'ETAP s'averent fructieuse. apres tout ca contribuera a retablir un certain equilibre Sud Nord.

    * la production de pétrole (a 66 kb/j) est en déclin depuis 20 ans, tandis que celle de gaz progresse mais reste modeste. Le pays importe désormais 20% du pétrole et 40% du gaz qu'il consomme. Les gisements découverts depuis de longues années sont ridiculement petits
    ==> ce qui explique peut etre le nom de "gisment marginaux" que leur a accorde le gouvernment.

    * La Tunisie touche environ 23 kbep/j de gaz gratuit - une indemnité en nature sur le gaz algérien transitant par son territoire avant d'atteindre l'Italie (pipeline "Transmed ").

    ==> Je me suis permis de contacter un proche de la famille qui opere dans ce secteur et j'ai pu savoir que les travaux pour le nouveau pipeline reliant la Tunisie a la Libye touchent a leur fin ... en faite ce pipline d'une longeur de 270 Km est suppose relier Mellita a Gabes pour finalement se fondre avec le reseau local de pipeline de la STEG. Ce pipline initialemenet dimensionne pour Deux Milliards metre cube par an; ne sera pas utilise a 100% de sa capacite; la tunisie compte dans le court terme ne s'acquire que 500 millions de Metre cube par an.

      Lundin to invest In Oudna

      Sweden's Lundin Petroleum has announced early february a 2006 development budget of more than $200 million; including $40 million - $50 million to be invested inn delivering significant production growth at its Oudna Field. Where it holds a 50% interest alongside Atlantis Technology services (subsidiary of China's Sinochem) even if ETAP has a 20 percent option which may be exercised up to 120 days from the commencement of production.

      Production from the offshore field is forecast to begin in late 2006 at a rate of 20,000 barrels a day. the project calls for the relocation and modification of the Ikdam floating production storage and offtake (FPSO) facility currently located on the Isis field; on which Lundin is also the operator. Isis is expected to stop production in the second quarter.

      Peak production at oudna is expected to last for 4-6 monthsof the estimated five-year lifespan of the field, which holds an estimated 11.5 million barrels of reserves. Devellopment work on the field is being carried out By UAE based Petrofac International.

      Fyi; Lundin is also the operator on the Zelfa and Birsa fields.

      here you can find the announcment made by Lundin in the internet.

        The coming crisis & the solution ...

        luckily, as we can see it; we were able to find a substitute for the ISIS field; but this alternative will be available only for a short period of time ... Today it's my conviction considering the global oil market current statut; Tunisia has to look for a new source of energy ...

        what can it be ??? the answer seems to be quite obvious ... Times has come to switch from an oil directed Economy to a Solar Economy ... that's the new challenge and fortunately our government understood the same and is now encouraging it ... at least I hope ...

          Benchmarking: L'algeri trace les grandes lignes pour de nouvelles source d'energie...

          Alger (la capitale) va lancer en 2015 3 nouveaux "solar hybrid power projects" avec une capacite combine de 1200 MW. ces trois nouveaux installation vont completer la premiere installation hybrid du pays la 155MW facilite a Hassi R'mel; dont le contart de devellopment va etre honore en Avril 2006.

          d'autre part; un appel d'offre va etre lance pour contrat pour devellopper un nouveau 10-MW "wind farm" sera aussi lance a la fin du mois d'Avril ...

          En 2010, Alger la capitale espere combler 5% de ses besions en energie (700MW par an) a travers d'autre alternativesavec un 1er objectif de 1400MW en 2015 et 7500 MW en 2020.

          ************************************************** *************

          Ou est ce que nous en sommes dans tout ca ... les campagnes de sensibilsation n'est pas l'arme des faibles ... au lieu d'etre reactif; ne fallait il pas etre proactif ... anticiper le probleme et creer la solution ... ne dit on pas prevenir mieux que guerir ...

            TUNISIA: OIL & GAZ: When offshore exploration starts to pick up !!!

            Norwegian based TGS - NOPEC has begun the acquisition of 600 square kilometers 3D Seismic on the El Louza block on the northeast of Sfax. The study will evaluate an existing discovery as well as four undrilled prospects each of which holds an estimated 40 Million - 50 million barrels of oil. Data processing and evaluation is due for completion by end of 2006. TGS has a 5% interest in the 4100 square Kilometer block and is the operator during the prospecting phase. the remaining 95% is held by UK listed Medoil. UK based Plectrum Petroleum has also announced it will invest $ 4.7 Million on an exploration program on the Nabeul block as part of its $ 472,000 acquisition in mid august of a 90% interest in Switzerland registered REAP Tunisia. REAP holds 50 % interests in the 3352 square Kilometer block in the gulf of Hammamet. The remainder is held by (Guess Who??) ETAP *. According to Plectrum Existing data has identified several prospective structures on the capable of trapping over 100 Million Barrels of oil equivalent*for ignorants, ETAP = Entreprise Tunisienne d'activites petrolieres*************************************** *****************I could ask ask what do you think about all this, but I know it right from now it's a lost cause ... therefore, I'll prefer sticking to my current role: just informing you for the purpose of informing ... and again sorry for bothering you with all such a long posting, I'm sorry for that writer is not gifted when it comes to talking fields / topics you appreciate ... ok !!! ok !!! I didn't say anything ... I'll go back to my hivernage !!!

              La Tunisie pour exporter du Gaz via le piepline Transmed

              Des discussions ont commence recemment en Tunisie entre la STIR, British Gaz et Sonatrach pour l'utilisation du pipeline Transmed en ue d'exporter du Gaz tunisien vers l'italie.

              La Tunisie est principalement un pur pays importateur de gaz. Fort heureusement avec le nouveau projet de Hasdrubal au golf de Gabesd'un coup total estime a 800 millions de dollars avec des reserves de plus de 75 millions be BOE (Barrels of oil equivalent) et donc faire basculer le pays dans un situation de surplus.

              Ce ci dit deux principaux obstacles se poseront dans ce cas:

              1/ Un probeme de capacite de pipeline, La quantite de gaz que la Tunisie voudra exporter.

              2/ Une certaine consistence entre le gaz Tunisien et celui exporte depuis l'algerie.

              Pour votre information:

              * le champ Hasdrubal est developpe par un consortuim compose de British Gaz et l'ETAP.

              * La capacite de la section pour la tunisie sur le pipeline transmed a ete augmente de 16% pour atteindre 33,500 million metre cube par an.
