About SDX

 

SDX is an international oil and gas exploration, production and development company, headquartered in London, United Kingdom, with a principal focus on MENA. In Egypt, SDX has a working interest in three producing assets.  In the South Disouq gas field in the Nile Delta, the Company has a 55% operated interest.  In the Eastern Desert, adjacent to the Gulf of Suez, the Company has two non-operated oil interests; 50% in North West Gemsa and 50% in Meseda.  In Morocco, SDX has a 75% working interest in the Sebou concession, situated in the Gharb Basin.
