Another gas discovery for British SDX in South Disouq

SDX strikes more gas: UK-based SDX Energy has made its largest gas discovery yet at its South Disouq concession after drilling its third and final exploration well, it said in a disclosure to the London Stock Exchange (pdf) yesterday. This follows another discovery in March, which is set to start contributing to production this month.
