Zion has completed the drilling of the MJ02 well to a total depth of 5,531 meters (18,141 feet) with a six-inch (6”) open hole at that depth.

The primary zone of interest contains encouraging shows of hydrocarbons.

A full set of detailed and comprehensive tests including neutron-density, sonic, gamma, and resistivity logs, paired with well testing, will commence during the coming weeks. Based on these logs and analysis, additional zones of interest may be identified and tested.

All testing equipment and personnel are in Israel, and Zion is assembling the required equipment at the well site for the comprehensive testing.
