NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania -- Petronas has failed to find hydrocarbons in the Gharabi deepwater prospect offshore Mauritania.

The well was drilled by the Maersk Deliverer in 1,787 m (5,863 ft) of water on block 6 to a TD of 4,433 m (14,544 ft). According to partner Tullow Oil, it intersected poorly developed water-bearing reservoirs.

Gharabi-1 was drilled to meet a commitment on the block, and has since been P&A’d.
