In 2011, an exploration well was drilled extremely deep (6,874 m) and made a gas discovery. In 2012, the drilling of a side track toward the North of the structure confirmed very promising results: the resources are estimated between 150 and 300 billion m3 - 5 to 10 trillion cubic feet - of gas with condensates. These volumes correspond to more than six years of natural gas consumption in France. In 2012, the project entered in development preparation phase.
