Cyprus' Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism has said Total's Onesiphoros West 1 exploration well offshore Cyprus had gas shows in a carbonate reservoir but not in commercial quantities.

Despite being non-commercial, the government said the discovery was "highly positive, since it confirms the existence of a petroleum system and a carbonate reservoir within the Cypriot Exclusive Economic Zone, similar to this Egyptian Zohr deposit". 

The well was drilled in Block 11 using the West Capella drillship.
