  • ¬†Abu Gabra Formation is considered the main source rock in the Muglad basin.
  • Hiba, Rakuba and Khdari subbasins are considered the main kitchen areas for block 21.
  • Six Out of ten wells drilled in the block 21 encountered oil shows, and thus manifested the presence of active petroleum system in Hiba and Rakuba sub-basins.
  • The depositional model of AG formation in Khadari basin suggest the dominance of deep lacustrine environments to the central depocenter, wich indicate the deposition of a good source rock facies.

  • Chevron started the exploration activities in 1975's and drilled one well between 1979-1985 in the present Khadari sub-basin, TOTAL leased the central part of Block - C (Bahr Al-Arab sub-basin) and conducted seismic survey during 1982 but no wells were drilled and relinquished the block in 1991, CNPC singed EPSA over Block-6 in 1996 with the Sudanese Government for the western part of the block and APCO consortium signed EPSA over the Block from 2003 up to 2011.
