Sidi Moussa & Foum Draa Licences


Longreach has a gross 10% interest in the Sidi Moussa and Foum Draa Exploration Licences.  Located offshore Morocco, directly west of Agadir it covers an area of 12,714 square kilometres (3.14 million acres). Extensive high quality 2D & 3D seismic work has been completed on these licences and from this extensive work programme some 33 leads and prospects have been identified. It is prospective for Upper and Lower Cretaceous and Jurassic oil and displays a very similar geology to the Scotian Margin.   

The exploration licence was awarded in June 2009 and the joint venture partners have now formulised a seismic reporcessing programme, which will focus on the most promising leads.  Serica as Technical Operator has completed the geological and geophysics work and have yielded some exciting results.

Exploration History

  • Very high quality 2D & 3D seismic completed by Enterprise Oil and Shell up until 2004
  • Extensive exploration of both licences
  • Two (one in Cap Draa and One in Rimella) wells drilled by Shell confirmed presence of thin reservoir beds and Oil shows in the Upper Cretaceous section
  • Operator will reprocess seismic which covers the most promising prospects
