MedOil, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cairn Energy PLC, has completed an exploration well offshore Tunisia in the Louza block.
The M'Sela West 1 well reached a total depth of 2,555m in the Serdj formation.
Although minor evidence of light oil was observed, the expected Isis target reservoir was not developed in the well. The well has been plugged and abandoned without testing.
The Ensco 85 rig has been released.
Cairn has an 85% interest in the Louza permit with the remaining 15% held by Dyas Tunisia B.V an affiliate of Dyas B.V.
