About Petroceltic International plc
Petroceltic International plc operates as an independent oil and gas exploration, development, and production company worldwide. The company holds oil and gas exploration licenses in Algeria, Tunisia, and Italy; and has production interests in Ireland.
Illizi Basin Isarene PSC (Blocks 228/229A): The company has a 75% Interest. The company has initiated the acquisition of the companys 3D seismic survey, which covers 850 square kilo meters over the Ain Tsila Ridge Ordovician prospect, and reprocessed 1,500 kilo meters of 2D seismic on its acreage.
Petroceltic has identified five prospective areas, including the Ain Tsila Ridge, Issaouane South (ISAS), Issaouane NW (INW), Hassi Tab Tab (HTT) and SW Isarene following an review of reprocessed seismic, well and geological information, including well test and core data. The other remaining prospect is SW Isarene which is an oil exploration target.
The Ain Tsila Ridge
Petroceltic is the foreign company to have a permit over the whole of the ridge area, and the opportunity to explore this feature as a single entity.
Petroceltic had contracted Global Geophysics to acquire a 3D WAZ seismic survey over the northern part of the ridge and as of May 2008, approximately 650 square kilometres of data has been acquired. In 2007 Medex, operator of the adjacent block 226 and Petroceltic undertook a joint technical study of the ISAS-INW area using a common data base.
Following the drilling of Petroceltics HTT 2 discovery well the HTT structure is being remapped using reprocessed seismic data.
In 2007, the company completed seismic reprocessing over this prospect area. Subsequent mapping of this data has identified 2 prospects, SW Isarene and El Biod south.
Tunisia Petroceltic 57% Interest/Operator
New interpretation of seismic and well data on the Ksar Hadada permit has yielded results with the validation of a number of Ordovician and Silurian prospects in the southern part of the block. In line with the Production Sharing Contract, Petroceltic and its co-venturer Independent Resources have retained 80% of the original Ksar Hadada permit (5,600 square kilo meters).
BR 268 RG (Elsa)
Petroceltic has a 40% interest in BR 268 RG. This block contains the Elsa oil discovery. Seismic data over the discovery has been obtained from ENI. Potential recoverable reserves for Elsa have been independently estimated to be 182 million barrels.
Civitaquana Exploration Permit
Petroceltic has a 35% interest in Civitaquana Exploration Permit. In 2007 Petroceltic received final ministerial approval for the Civitaquana exploration permit onshore Italy. The permit is located in the Marche-Abruzzi Basin of central Italy, west of the onshore Miglianico oil and gas discovery and close to Petroceltics BR 268 RG Offshore Permit, in the Adriatic Sea. The block contains various potential oil and gas targets, including a shallow Pliocene gas play and possible extensions of the intra-Cretaceous Maiolica formation that yielded light oil and gas in the nearby Miglianico discovery well.
Po Valley Permits
In October 2007 Petroceltic acquired a portfolio of acreage comprising 4 exploration permits from BG Italia. The interests in these permits vary from 50 per cent to 95 per cent. In addition, the deal included interests in two permit applications, one in the Po Valley and one offshore in the Sicily Channel in Southern Italy. These permits, Carisio, Torrente Nure, Casalnoceto and Vercelli contain an inventory of prospects with estimated unrisked recoverable resources in approximately 1 TCFe (trillion cubic feet gas equivalent).
Petroceltics activity in the Po Valley will focus on the Carissio and Torrente Nure Licences. In Carissio (Petroceltic Operated, 95% interest) there are two gas prospects well-defined by 3D seismic, Rosso and Arborio.
Adriatic Permit Applications
Petroceltic has a 100% interest in Adriatic Permit Applications. In 2007, seven new permit applications in the Central Adriatic offshore were awarded on to Petroceltic Elsa Srl (Petroceltic) a wholly owned subsidiary of the company. These exploration permit areas were primarily selected to access the Elsa-Miglianico oil fairway, into the Central Adriatic, to the east and southeast of the existing Petroceltic blocks. They are adjacent to four oil and gas fields, the Miglianico, Rospo Mare and Ombrino Mare oil fields and the Santo Stefano Mare Gas field. Petroceltic would operate the seven exploration permits with a 100% working interest. These permit areas, which cover approximately 2,040 square kilometers lie in water depths ranging from 30 to 150 metres. The seven exploration permits are part of an application for nine permits, in the central Adriatic area.
Kinsale Gas Royalty (Marathon Gas Storage Project)
The Marathon operated Kinsale Head, SW Kinsale and Ballycotton Gas fields. The company focuses on extending the portfolio with assets in Italy and maturing its prospects in Algeria, Italy and Tunisia towards the drilling phase.
On December 17, 2009, Petroceltic International plc has signed a farm-in agreement with Vega Oil S.p.A. The contract has been signed to raise the company's participating interest in permit B.R268.RG, which includes the Elsa discovery, offshore Italy, from 40% to 70%.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
