In late August, the Italian company Eni announced the discovery of a major gas field in the Mediterranean Sea
This discovery caused a huge resonance in the media. In numerous comments that event (discovery) is
discussed and analyzed from the various aspects energetic, economic, political, etc.

This study introduces the technological aspect in the event assessment. Furthermore, it presents and analyzes the results of operative evaluation of petroleum potential of a relatively large area in the vicinity of the Open- field,
with using the direct prospecting technology of frequency- resonance processing and decoding of remote sensing data (satellite images) for oil and gas and ore minerals “direct” searching and prospecting.
 zohr oil and gas

In the Mediterranean Sea, in the region of discovered by the Eni Company the Zohr large gas field three anomalous zones of the “oil and gas deposit” type have been detected and mapped within an investigated area of 2200 km2. The area of the detected anomalies over Zohr gas field is 105 km2. The total area of all anomalies is 251 km2. In the percentage for the area of the surveyed site it is 251/2200=11.41%. Three intervals for the hydrocarbon deposits searching have been found by the research in the area of the gas field: 3720-4180 m, 5070-5620 m and 6500-6570 m. Three search intervals were allocated also within the other two anomalies. One of them was mapped on the Cyprus offshore.

Operative examination  of  search  sites  and  blocks  before  the  licensing  rounds  (tenders)  gives for potential investors  the  opportunity  to  refuse from  the participating in  the  study  and  development  of  unpromising  for  the detection of industrial (commercial) hydrocarbon accumulations areas and blocks. This  kind  of  evaluation  work  can  be  efficiently  performed with using  a  frequency  resonance  technology  of remote sensing data processing and interpretation within any exploration block in different regions of the globe

Main conclusions

1. The independent information on the oil and gas potential of the local area in the Mediterranean Sea, located in the vicinity of the discovered large gas field within the Zohr structure framework, was received. In general, the vast gas resources in an open gas field were confirmed by operatively conducted research.
2. The research results confirm also and the science-based assumptions (developments) of the researchers, which suggests that this region is a major oil and gas area.
3. The potential of super-operative and direct-prospecting frequency resonance technology of remote sensing data processing is fully demonstrated. This technology more active and purposeful using will significantly accelerate and optimize the process of prospecting and exploration for commercial hydrocarbon accumulations on offshore and on onshore.

Additional recommendations:

The presence of additional anomalies in the vicinity of the Zohr structure, and their confirmation by further work can significantly increase the potential and attractiveness of this area (Block 9). To confirm these prospects, it is advisable to compare the obtained independent information with the results of previously conducted geophysical surveys (seismic, in the first place). If in the seismic materials the potential traps will be detected, the additional studies on a larger scale can be operatively performed within the observed anomalies.
