BG plc, through its wholly owned subsidiary, British Gas Tunisia Limited, has drilled a third successful appraisal well on its Hasdrubal gas discovery, offshore Tunisia.

Hasdrubal-4, located 106 kilometers (kms) offshore in the Gulf of Gabes, flowed 4.6 million cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfd) and 1800 barrels of liquids per day from a single drill stem test. It follows the success of Hasdrubal-3, drilled 4.5 kms to the north-east of the well in 1997, and Hasdrubal-2 drilled 1.5kms to the south-east of Hasdrubal-3 in 1994. Development options for the field are currently being considered.

The Hasdrubal field was first discovered in 1975 by Elf (Sofratep) but initially regarded as non-commercial.

Hasdrubal-4 was drilled on the Amilcar permit, which is operated by British Gas Tunisia Limited., and held jointly with the Tunisian state oil company ETAP (Entreprise Tunisienne d'Activits Ptrolires). The permit is located in the Gulf of Gabes and contains the Miskar gas field.

British Gas Tunisia Limited operates and holds a 100 per cent interest in the Miskar field, 110 kms offshore. The field has a daily production rate of 190 mmscfd and produces more than 80 per cent of Tunisia's current gas demand.
