PERTH, Australia -- AuDAX Resources has awarded Petroleum Geoservices (PGS) a contract to conduct a 3D seismic survey over the Sambuca prospect, Dougga field, and other leads in the Kerkouane permit offshore Tunisia.

The 620-sq km (239-sq mi) acquisition is scheduled to begin in 1Q 2010 using PGS’s Geostreamer dual sensor technology. According to AuDAX, the survey will help confirm the location of the proposed Sambuca exploration well and a future evaluation well on the Dougga field.

The Kerkouane permit contains one of the largest undrilled structures in the Mediterranean Sea and several other prospective structures with a total recoverable resource potential of over 1 Bboe, the company says.
