Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 5/25/2017, Location: Europe

Energean Oil & Gas has signed a Lease Agreement with the Greek government for the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons at the Aitoloakarnania block, onshore Western Greece.

Aitoloakarnania is an underexplored block covering 4,360 sq km and is part of the same system commonly referred to as the Ionian Basin. The area is a geological continuation of the Ioaninna block, which has been explored by Energean since 2014. Both blocks cover a total of 8,547 sq km and are priority exploration targets for Energean and strategically important for the Greek oil & gas sector. The area is also considered to be the southern-most extension of the greater peri-Adriatic basin, which has proven prolific with oil and gas production in Albania, Italy, and Croatia.

In total, over 10 billion barrels of oil and 30 trillion cubic feet of gas have been discovered throughout this region.

Mathios Rigas, Chairman and CEO of Energean Group, commented: 'Energean is the only producer of oil & gas in Greece where we are developing the 41 million barrels of 2P reserves in Prinos. In addition, Energean is developing through an FPSO the 2.4 TCF Karish and Tanin, deepwater offshore gas fields in Israel, and to complement our producing and development assets we are building a very promising exploration portfolio in Western Greece and the East Adriatic. We are investing a total of $1.5 billion in the region with a vision to become the leading independent in the East Med.

Exploring Ioannina and Aitolokarnania is an integral part of our strategy to create nearterm value through acquiring and developing a balanced mix of assets in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Due to our relevant geographical experience, Energean has been able to acquire nine highly prospective licenses in this region and partner with world-class players.'

In March 2017, Energean agreed to farm out a 60% interest in Ioannina and Aitoloakarnania blocks to Repsol, which will be the Operator of both the Aitoloakarnania and Ioannina blocks, onshore Western Greece. The two companies have already submitted an application to the Greek Government to approve Repsolís plans to farm in and undertake a 2D seismic survey over the Ioannina block in 2017/2018, and conduct an FTG and 2D seismic survey over the Aitoloakarnania block in 2018/2019.
