LONDON -- Plectrum Petroleum Plc. has acquired the remaining 10% of REAP Tunisia GmbH. In June 2006, Plectrum acquired 90% of the company, which resulted in Plectrum's acquisition of 50% interest in the Nabeul block offshore Tunisia.
Since the June acquisition, reprocessed seismic data over Nabeul has increased the number of prospects from four to 12. A 3,000-km (1,864-mi) 2D seismic survey over the block is scheduled to begin in Q3 2007.
On Plectrum's behalf, TRACS International has reviewed the prospects and reported that prospect No. 1 could contain mean prospective resources of 71 MMbbl of oil, and prospect No. 4 could contain 82 MMbbl.
