The Teboursouk block covers 4,956 sq km in Tunisia’s northwest region, in the governorate of Jendouba.

Petter Elmstedt, chief executive of Petroskandia said, “The block holds great interest as it is part of a formation that has already yielded several significant discoveries in neighbouring Algeria and Italy.”

The Stockholm-based start-up is expected to hold a 50 per cent operatorship stake in the northwest Tunisian block, with state-owned company ETAP (Entreprise Tunisienne D’Activités Pétrolière) holding the other half, according to the joint venture agreement.

Petroskandia is likely to acquire a total of at least 250km of 2D seismic data and to drill one exploration well during the initial five-year term, which is extendable up to eight years, the company said.
