Petrel Confirms Finalisation of a PSA on the East Safawi Block in Jordan

Petrel Resources confirms finalisation of a Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) on the East Safawi Block in Jordan. King Abdullah of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan attended the ceremony, where a total of $2.5 billion of investment was announced by the Jordanian authorities.

East Safawi forms part of the prospective Arabian Desert. The East Safawi block adjoins the producing gas field at Risha and oil producing blocks in Syria. The oil targets are in shallow formations and there are well-established gas plays at depth.

Jordanian Production Sharing terms are clear and attractive. The contractor receives 60% of oil production – or gas equivalent - up to 10,000 barrels daily, with a sliding scale to a 35% share of production over 100,000 barrels daily oil equivalent. There were no material objections to the Petrel contract in parliament or elsewhere.

The agreement envisages a 3 year first phase exploration. Initial work includes seismic reprocessing and reinterpretation and new seismic. Targets identified are expected to be drilled in 2008/09, depending on operational developments.

Historically, a concern was that Jordan is most prospective for gas. This is now seen as an advantage, due to the massive international increase in demand for natural gas, both in the region and further. With the Arab gas pipeline project well advanced, and planned to extend to Turkey and into the European network, Jordan will be both a supplier and reliable access route for Middle Eastern gas exports to Europe.
