Greece’s oil producer, Energean Oil & Gas has completed a new 2D seismic s urvey over the West Baliana interior rift basin in the Northern region of the West Komombo-Block 3 concession area, onshore Egypt, RigZone reported. The survey lasted three months and was conducted by Africa Geophysical Services LLC ahead of two exploration wells that are planned for drilling in 2016.

Preliminary processing results and interpretation showed “well pronounced prospective structure developments within the well identified interior rift system at the northern part of the concession,” according to a company’s statement.
Located in the South Central Desert in Upper Egypt, the West Komombo block has a geological structure similar to the neighboring Al Baraka oil field, where international oil companies have been producing hydrocarbons for several years.
