The flow test (Drill Stem Test - DST) was conducted and found the crude oil flow at approximately 1,000 barrels per day (BOPD) and natural gas at 0.3 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD). PTTEP and its partners planned to drill more exploration and appraisal wells to confirm the extent of the petroleum reserves in the area.

Hassi Bir Rekaiz block is located onshore in the Eastern part of Algeria. It covers an area of 5,377.97 square kilometers. PTTEP’s joint venture partners for this block are SONATRACH with 51% interest and CNOOC Limited with 24.5% interest. PTTEP as an operator holds the rest of 24.5% interest.
