    History of this Location

    Marker is approximately centre point of the Block 6 hydrocarbon exploration area in Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone. In Feb 2016 the Cypriot Government announced a competition for licences for Blocks 6, 8 and 10 (the latter two to the east and south of Block 6, respectively). In 2017, the Italian ENI and French Total organisations were awarded collaborative rights to Block 6.

    Cyprus has developed Median Line agreements with Egypt and Israel in accordance with UNCLOS 82 principles for its EEZ. This potential economic windfall for Cyprus has met with objections from Turkey on behalf of its citizens in the north of the island. To such an extent that, following a NATO exercise in the Eastern Mediterranean, Turkey retained warships in the area in early Nov 2017, to monitor the drilling.

    In Feb 2018, ENI and Total announced a Gas find of exploitable quantity, in geology similar to that of the nearby Zohr field (further to the south), offshore from Egypt. Cyprus Block 6 is located over part of the distal end of the Nile submarine deltaic fan extension.
