BUCHAREST, July 7 (Reuters) - Romania's top oil and gas firm Petrom controlled by Austria's OMV said on Thursday it made a potentially significant gas discovery in south western Romania.
In a statement on the Bucharest bourse's website here, Petrom said its exploration well 4539 Totea was tested at a maximum rate of 3,100 boe/day gas and associated condensate from a single zone.
It said further appraisal drilling was planned to assess what may be the most important onshore gas discovery in Romania in the last six years. (Reporting by Radu Marinas; Editing by William Hardy)
