Sonatrach and partners Gulf Keystone Petroleum and BG Group (Operator) announced that drilling on the HBH-4 appraisal well, on the Hassi Ba Hamou ("HBH") gas field in Algeria, has been completed and the well tested. The drilling of the HBH-4 well began on 16 December 2007 to a total depth of 1,011 metres.

A production test has been carried out on reservoirs of Devonian age. A stabilised flow rate of 12,800 cubic meters per hour (10.8 mmscfg per day) was achieved through a 88/64-inch choke.

The HBH permit, which contains the HBH gas field, was awarded in May 2005 ("HBH Permit"). It comprises five blocks within an area of 18,380 square kilometres in the Bechar Basin in Algeria's Western Desert.

Partners in the HBH Permit are Gulf Keystone 38.25%, BG Group 36.75% and SONATRACH 25%.

The drill rig will now move to drill well HBHN-1, an exploration well to the north of the HBH gas field.
