Drilling Activity Summary


Energean Oil & Gas Plc, based in London, announced results from exploration well #1 Karish North in offshore Israel. Preliminary analysis indicates the initial gas-in-place estimate is between 1-1.5 Tcf in a high-quality reservoir in the B and C sands. It was drilled to 4,880 m and hit a gross hydrocarbon column of up to 249 m, and a 27-m core was recovered to surface. Further evaluation is planned to refine resource potential and determine the liquids content of the discovery. The well will be deepened to evaluate the hydrocarbon potential of D4 Sands. After operations are completed the drillship will drill three more Karish Main development wells.
