Tunisia Pelagian exploration basin

Tunisia Pelagian exploration basin

Report summary

The Tunisian Pelagian basin is mature, with just 24 mmboe of resource discovered in the last ten years. Combined with low recent exploration success, this drives very high discovery costs for the last decade. Our forecast of remaining resources to be discovered during the outlook period is very modest, the majority of which will be concentrated on the shelf. Despite the limited yet-to-find potential, attractive local oil and gas prices combined with a quickly accessible infrastructure network results in positive full-cycle value creation across the basin as a whole.

Oil and gas exploration is an industry in constant motion, from technological breakthroughs to shifting supply and demand. The high costs of finding and developing new oil and gas fields that can be commercially developed has created a challenging atmosphere, with explorers increasingly seeing low returns, low value and slow progress.

This Exploration Basin report provides a detailed analysis of exploration of this basin, including discovery and development costs, location maps and information about licensing and fiscal terms. You'll also find information about discovery and development costs and full-cycle returns.

Explorers and advisors can use this report to understand the history and potential value of this basin.

Wood Mackenzie has access to historic data for over 450 basins and forecasts for more than 125 basins. We provide accurate information on the cost of exploration compared to the value of discoveries so that you can develop profitable strategies.

Our in-depth analysis gives you the information you need to navigate the ever-changing challenges of oil and gas exploration so you can make critical commercial decisions.
