Morocco has signed three exploration contracts with three international oil companies from Cyprus, Canada and Malaysia, MAP news agency reported.

The agreements were signed, on the sidelines of the 4th conference "Maghreb & Mediterranean Oil and Gas 2006" in Marrakech, by Amina Benkhadra, general director of the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines (ONHYM), with the representatives of Cabre Maroc Ltd (Cyprus), Transatlantic Maroc Ltd (Canada) and Genting Oil Morocco Ltd (Malaysia).

These bring the number of agreements signed with ONHYM in the mining sector to 17 agreements and six reconnaissance contracts in collaboration with 20 partners.

The contracts cover a total area of 237,195,40 km2, providing for four exploration concessions, 85 research permits (14 onshore and 71 offshore) and six onshore reconnaissance authorisations.

The Minister of Energy and Mining, Mohamed Boutaleb, invited on Wednesday international oil companies to benefit from morocco's potentials.

“Morocco, with its 350,000 km2 of sedimentary basins, constitutes an interesting and practically virgin zone for oil drilling,” he underlined.

“Although we are satisfied with the quality of cooperation with the oil companies operating in Morocco at present, our subsoil is still under-tapped,” he added.

We can also reduce the need to more natural gas by getting more renewable energies. More wind and PV solar can help.
We still far behind the objectives we set few years ago.
..... Maybe Morocco could reach earlier 100% due to other discoveries in the country.
^^That would be even better !
How many % for our need we are going to export from 2024.

And how many % we gone import for our need in the same 2024 ?????

And at what price imp/exp diffirence ???

Predator Oil & Gas To Commence Drilling in Guercif in December
London-listed SDX has made a pair of gas discoveries in Morocco following a two-well drilling campaign, the company said in a stock filing on November 14.

The SAK-1 well has already been hooked up to the company's infrastructure, with tests indicating in-place gas "on the higher side of the pre-drill P50 estimate of 0.44bn ft3," SDX said. The well opens up a new production area to the northwest of the company's main well base, it said, noting that several follow-on prospects had been identified within the SAK area.

The KSR-20 well also struck gas and is now undergoing a pressure build-up test. It will be put on stream as soon as permitting and tie-in work is completed.

On the back of these successes, SDX said it had identified several more drillable prospects and would expand its well campaign next year. So far it has identified more than 70 prospects across its Moroccan acreage that is covered by 3D seismic surveying, 25 of which have been high-graded and contain 20bn ft3 in total P50 unrisked resources.

"We are pleased with the results of both the SAK-1 and KSR-20 wells. In addition to opening a new play fairway with numerous follow-on drillable targets, the wells will contribute immediately to production and revenue growth in an area where demand and gas pricing is robust," company CEO Mark Reid said in a statement. "Morocco remains a key area of potential growth for SDX and we look forward to planning further drilling in 2023."
