Another area in the Black Sea economic zone of Bulgaria to be drilled in search of oil and gas

The ministry of energy is preparing tender documentation requirements and will launch a new competitive procedure of the search and exploration for oil and gas in the Khan Tervel Block of the deep-sea territories in the Bulgarian Black Sea territorial waters. This was announced by energy minister Temenuzhka Petkova at a meeting with representatives of French company Total, which has already been exploring the 1-21 Khan Asparuh Block in the northern part of Bulgaria's sea economic zone.
Total via its Bulgarian registered company Total E&P Bulgaria (and in partnership with Spanish Repsol and OMV from Austria) has already completed two exploratory drillings at the Khan Asparuh Block in the Polshkov-1 and Rubin-1 areas but hasn't yet revealed the results.
The manager of Total E&P Bulgaria Xavier Faugeras donated the drill bit from the Polshkov-1 area to the energy ministry.
The vice president of Total Bernard Clement said the company would continue its explorations in the Bulgarian territorial waters in the Black Sea.
