The Kafra Block lies in the north of Niger, bordering Algeria. The geology of the block represents a continuation of the rift basin system seen in the Ténéré Block.[1] The exploration licence was awarded to Sonatrach in 2005, and covers an area of 23,737 square kilometers. It adjoins the Tafassasset Block in Algeria, which is also held by Sonatrach.[2] Sonatrach are committed to drilling 3 wells and spending $29.5 million in exploring the Kafra Block over a period of 12 years.[3]
