PA Resources has submitted an updated Zarat Field Plan of Development to the Tunisian authorities. This Plan of Development is a technically and commercially robust plan which has been constructed by the Zarat Field joint development team; an integrated team comprising of staff from both PA Resources and the state oil company, ETAP (L'Entreprise Tunisienne d'Activités Pétrolières).
The Zarat Field is a large, shallow-water, gas-condensate and oil field containing estimated recoverable reserves of 147 mmboe. It is Tunisia's largest undeveloped field and production from Zarat Field will be critical in alleviating a forecast future gas supply deficit in Tunisia. Zarat Field is geologically similar to PA Resources' nearby Didon Field and to other producing fields such as Ashtart and Hasdrubal fields in Tunisia and the giant El Bouri and Al Jurf fields in Libya.
