- SDX Energy said it had started planning for a new 12-well drilling campaign in Morocco.

The campaign would commence either by the end of the third quarter of 2019 or the fourth quarter of 2019 and wrap up during the first half of 2020.

Total gross capex was expected at around $10m, with SDX's share being around $8m.
