Disappointing results in bloc 9

Exploratory drilling in bloc 9 of South Cyprus’ EEZ shows that there will be a very poor yield in that zone, ‘Famagusta Gazette’ reports.

In July, indications for gas yields in bloc 9 looked very promising but on Friday, the South’s energy minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis said he was prepared for the possibility that there would be no hydrocarbon reserves in the ‘Onasagoras’ field.

Since there are no exploitable amounts of gas in that field, Eni/KoGAS consortium will move on to the the ‘Amathousa’ section of bloc 9.

ENI’s drill ship, ‘SAIPEM 10000’ will continue with its explorations that began in September.
