Perenco's Tunisian assets were acquired in July 2002. Perenco now owns 50% and operates the El Franig, Baguel, and Tarfa gas condensate fields in Central Tunisia.
Today, production comprises 18 mmscfd of gas, 2 mmscfd of LPG equivalent and 800 bopd of condensates.
Production from the El Franig and Baguel fields is transported to the central processing facility in Oum-Chiah via a 120 km gas line. Condensate is transferred to the terminal for export, and gas is delivered to the Gabes plant for domestic consumption.
In 2012, Perenco validated with its Tunisian Partner ETAP and the Ministry of Energy a complementary development plan for its concessions, with significant new commitments including seismic and drilling activities. This marked another major step in Perenco's investment history in the country.
2013 will see the 3D seismic acquisition on El Franig and the evaluation of sidetracks on two Baguel wells.
