The Block

Aitoloakarnania is a large underexplored block of 4,360 km2. Onshore Western Greece is part of the same petroleum system, commonly referred to as the Ionian “Basin” or “Zone”. On a regional scale, the area may also be considered to be the southern-most extension of the greater peri-Adriatic basin, which is proven productive for oil and gas in Albania, Italy, and Croatia.
Over 10 billion barrels of oil and 30 trillion cubic feet of gas have been discovered in place associated with the hydrocarbon systems throughout this area. Moreover, Jurassic oil recovered on Paxi Island.
