Australia's Woodside has agreed a contract with the Office National de Hydrocarbures et des Mines for an exclusive license known as the Rabat Ultra Deep Offshore in the under-explored Doukkala basin.


The block, known as the Rabat Ultra Deep Offshore area, comprises an area of 36,737sqkm with water depths range from 1700m to 4400 meters. It is just west of the Rabat Deep I-VI permits in which Woodside previously acquired 25 per cent interest, according to news reports on PipelineME. Under the reconnaissance licence the programme will include a 2D seismic survey and studies. The 12-month licence is subject to Ministerial approval.
