    Mazarine Energy acquires the Zaafrance license in Tunisia, a 5,000km2 area in central Tunisia, an internationally recognized and highly promising area with significant unconventional resources.

    Shortly after acquiring the operatorship, the company acquired 330km2 of 3D seismic data and after reprocessing 3000km of vintage 2D seismic data, the company signed a drilling contract with Compagnie Tunisienne de Forage for a two-well drilling campaign.
