CNA - CYPRUS/Nicosia 08/02/2018 16:24



Energy Minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis announced Thursday that the consortium of Italy’s ENI and France’s Total had discovered an extended gas column demonstrating the existence of a natural gas deposit at “Calypso” well of Cyprus’ offshore block 6.

Lakkotrypis said that at present no specific volumes could be announced and that detailed geophysical and geological studies and further work on surveys and assessments will be carried out. As he said more time is needed to give an assessment of the volumes, but  what’s important is that there’s a natural gas discovery.
