December 21, 2022

PARIS — TotalEnergies and Eni made a new gas discovery at the Zeus-1 well, in Block 6, offshore Cyprus. The Zeus-1 well encountered 105 meters of net gas pay in carbonate reservoirs that re-enforces the area’s promising outlook and development.

The Tungsten Explorer drillship drilled and tested Zeus-1 both successfully and safely. This discovery follows the Calypso-1 and the Cronos-1 discoveries made on the same block in 2018 and August 2022.

 “New data gathered from the well will assist our ongoing assessment of fast-track development options for the discovered resources,” said Kevin McLachlan, Senior Vice President, Exploration at TotalEnergies.

TotalEnergies holds a 50% interest in Block 6, where Eni is the operator (50%).
