Other areas - Algeria has more than 1,200 kms of coastline on the Mediterranean Sea but only 3 dry offshore exploration wells have been drilled, all of them in the 1970s with one in deep waters. In 2012 CGG-Veritas carried out an offshore seismic survey and the coastal strip offshore the Bejaïa-Annaba perimeter (blocks 144-A and 145) and waters adjacent to the Willaya of Jijel will be opened for exploration. In March 2017 Eni and ExxonMobil signed a contract with Sonatrach to study this area.

Sonatrach has also begun exploring again the northern foldbelt, an area with fewer than 100 wells drilled since 1950. It started drilling a well in the Sirghine, Tiaret area west of Algiers in 2017.
