It’s worth mentioning that this well was drilled in 1968 by Mobel Oil Company, but it was not developed due to lack of economic visibility for the project at that time. Recently the well was granted to Zalaf Libya Company for Exploration and Production to study and develop it and start the production at the proper time.
