Spectrum : Lebanon Officially Confirms 2nd Offshore License Round

04/05/2019 | 08:52am EDT

The Lebanese government has approved the opening of the country's much-anticipated 2nd offshore licensing round. There is now no pre-qualification phase in this round and interested companies will be expected to submit their bids by 31 January 2020.

A total of five offshore blocks are to be offered in the 2nd round - blocks 1,2, 5, 8 and 10.

Following the prominent Zohr discovery, which opened up a different play type to those of the Leviathan and Aphrodite discoveries, much of the eastern Mediterranean has seen a renewed focus of exploration activity. With this increased level of interest, Lebanon's 2nd offshore licensing round provides a timely opportunity to gain access to favourable acreage in this emerging region.


ExxonMobil, along with partners Qatar Petroleum, recently announced a multi-TCF discovery of gas in the Glaucus-1 well offshore Cyprus. The well encountered a gas-bearing reservoir of ~133 metres with in-place resources estimated to be 3-5 TCF. This discovery brings the total announced gas reserves in the region up to 70 TCF.

Spectrum has acquired and interpreted over 5,000 km2 of modern Multi-Client 3D data offshore Lebanon, covering 3 of the 4 blocks anticipated to be included in the 2nd licensing round. Through this data, Spectrum has shown that the Early Miocene reservoir indicates a string of three-way dip closed and one-way fault closed structures that range in size from 20 to 50 km2, capped by thick Late Miocene mudstones. These are similar in size to the Tamar structure (9 TCF) to the south but less highly faulted.
