Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/25/2014 -- The Bulgarian business environment remains challenging , suffering from high levels of corruption and inefficiency , while a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing remains in place . Bulgaria's oil sector is uninspiring with limited new activity and a continued decline in domestic production. Upside in Bulgaria's oil and gas sector comes from the USD 1. 5 bn investment to upgrade the Neftochim refinery which will add a 50,000 barrel per day vacuum distillation unit , and from the natural gas sector which is looking increasingly positive. New gas projects being brought online both on and offshore will add to domestic output, as well as growing prospects from offshore seismic projects.

The main trends and developments in Bulgaria's oil and gas sector are:
- In September 2013, PetroCeltic successfully completed the tie-back of the Kaliakra-1 well to the Galata production platform. The addition of the Kaliakra tie-back will boost gas production to just over 500mn cubic metres (Mcm) in 2013. The offshore East Kavarna field is planned to be brought on stream in 2015, further adding to gas production growth. We anticipate production to reach 800Mcm by 2017.In January 2014, TransAtlantic Petroleum announced the continuation of drilling at the Deventci-R2 well in the Koynare concession. Sales of gas from the well are expected from 2014, with the wider area helping Bulgaria to continue year-on-year growth of domestic gas production through to 2016. Further 3D seismic to study structures of the Koynare fault trend is also due for 2014.
- Further upside to Black Sea potential could be gained in the Khan-Asparuh block, to the South of Romania's successful Neptun block. In late 2013, OMV, Total and Repsol completed the largest 3D seismic survey ever in the Black Sea. Data is now being analysed, with Total due to operate any potential drilling programme.
- Despite growing interest in the Black Sea, it has not all been positive. The tender for the...
