A new and "unexpected" gas and condensate plus "oil" discovery, has been done offshore delta nile in this month.
Eni drilled a well in 1450 water depth, based on three seismic 2D lines. Many others major refused to enter ...
I have seen one line and after the discovery is easy to say "was a good prospect". Anyway it is a realy big organic construction similar to bahamas model with an internal lagoon and porous limestone in the left and right side (i do not know the orientation of the line).
This huge body is 1500 m circa hight and is laterally bounded by flat clastic sediments.
Another but smaller body is inside the exploration permit.
what is amazing is the body itself and which type of genesis it can have had.... a big mound in the middle of a basin ...
Hope to see something else soon.
The GOIP is 50 Tera but they expect additional oil at the base of this giant.
We admit we were one of the company ... in the bunch of companies ... which refuse to farm in ...
