Senegal's state company PETROSEN has discovered natural gas reserves estimated at 10 billion cubic metres in the region of Thies, 70 km (45 miles) from the Senegalese capital. A PETROSEN official said the new field would cover Senegal's needs in natural gas for 30 years. In the same region, a gas field with reserves estimated at 500 million cubic metres was found in 1993.
