Tunisia’s oil industry quite modest in comparison to its neighbour Algeria. The 2012 BP Statistical Energy Survey estimates Tunisia had proved oil reserves of 0.425 billion barrels at the end of 2011 which is equivalent to 15 years of current production.

Intensive exploration has been carried out in Tunisia since the discovery of oil in neighbouring Algeria and in May 1964, Tunisia’s first oil field, El Borma, was discovered in the southern region near its frontier with Algeria.

Tunisia’s main oil producing fields are El Borma, Ashtart and Sidi el Kilani while the principal gas fields are the El Borma field where associated gas is produced, and the offshore Miskar field.
