Petroceltic has planned 10 firm wells over the year in Egypt, Bulgaria, Romania and Kurdistan.

The wells include the completion of the Kaliakra discovery in Bulgaria and four development wells in Egypt.

Its Ain Tsila gas project will move into 30-year development and exploitation phase following approval from Algeria's Alnaft last December.

The company will also upgrade production facilities on West Dikirnis and West Khilala fields in Egypt.

Brian O'Cathain , Chief Executive of Petroceltic, said: "We anticipate an exciting year ahead, with a sustained exploration drilling program which offers exposure to a diversified portfolio of prospects including the company's first well in Kurdistan."
