FEATURED: MALTA'S CONTINENTAL SHELF

Malta claims a continental shelf with an area of over 70,000 km2, bordering Italy, Tunisia and Libya. Much of this area hosts the Malta Isolated Carbonate Platform (MICP) and a sector of the Ionian Basin in the east.

The hydrocarbon potential of the MICP is definite, but more work needs to be done to refine the geological model and hydrocarbon prospects. In view of the prospects, and the increased demand for gas, it is surprising that the number of wells drilled in the Maltese continental shelf has declined in the past two decades and presently the number of oil and gas licences is nil.
