The Sabria oil and gas field is located in central southern Tunisia within the southern part of the Chotts Basin. The field was discovered by Amoco in 1979 and is now operated by Serinus Energy. Gas is compressed at in field facilities and evacuated via Perenco's 10 inch multiphase line from El Franig to Gabes to be sold to STEG the Tunisian State Electricity and Gas Company. Oil is trucked to a transfer terminal and delivered via pipeline to the La Skhira export terminal. In May 2015 localised protests blocked access roads to the central processing facility forcing production to be shut in. Production restarted in late July 2015. Significant upside exists at Sabria. The field remains under explored with only eight wells drilled over an area of extending over 80 km2. No reserves have been assigned to the eastern part of the field where further appraisal drilling could unlock additional reserves.
