We have continued to build an exploration focused onshore Mediterranean gas business hinged on strong European gas fundamentals, a strategic partnership with Schlumberger and a low cost multi Tcf potential development asset in Morocco.

Our focus during 2016 has been to pursue a high impact exploration campaign in Eastern Morocco (drilling TE-6 and TE-7) whilst finalising preparations to drill Badile in Northern Italy.
