Natural gas: Chariot starts drilling operations at Loukos Onshore

The British energy operator Chariot announced this Thursday, May 2 that drilling operations have started within the Loukos Onshore permit. The operations concern the RZK-1 well on the Gaufrette prospect.

Acquired in August 2023, the Loukos license, held 75% by Chariot and 25% by ONHYM, covers an approximate area of ​​1,371 km2 between Kénitra and Larache. It is adjacent to Chariot’s Lixus and Rissana offshore licenses, the former containing the major Anchois discovery gas development project.

It therefore took less than 10 months for Chariot’s operational teams to begin drilling, which was welcomed by Duncan Wallace, technical director of the company in a communicated.

The “Gaufrette” prospect is considered promising. It could represent up to 26 billion cubic feet of potential resources. The “Dartois” prospect is also identified as a likely drilling target, offering additional potential of over 20 billion cubic feet.

On February 5, Chariot received approval of its environmental impact study (EIA) from the Unified Regional Investment Commission. The environmental permit approval covers a maximum of 20 wells in the Loukos Onshore area.
