    Apache has revealed two hydrocarbon discoveries at its Herunefer-1X and BAT-1X well located in Egypt's Western Desert.

    Herunefer-1X discovery

    · Encountered pay in the Alamein, Alam El Buieb-6 (AEB), Masajid, Upper Safa and Lower Safa formations

    Apache plans to drill several trend exploration wells in 2014 to evaluate and appraise the BAT discovery. Alternatives for delivering the production to market are under evaluation.

    In Jan-2014, Apache Corporation successfully flow-tested two discoveries in the North Tarek and Khalda Offset Concessions in Egypt.
