Bou Hajla is a town and commune in the Kairouan Governorate, Tunisia. As of 2004 it had a population of 6,002.[1]

Canadian oil and gas producer DualEx Energy International Inc said an initial evaluation of its Bouhajla Permit in Tunisia showed a reserve of more than one billion barrels of petroleum in place.[2] The company said the evaluation showed a combined best estimate of 1.03 billion stock tank barrels of petroleum in place at its three Bouhajla prospects.[3]

With an initial investment of 5,200,000 Tunisian dinars, this permit is a partnership between Tunisia DUALEX Inc. and the Tunisian Company of Petroleum Activities,for the production of oil and gas from the site.[4] The shares of the company based in Calgary soon climb 40% to the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The town lacks previous industrial developments and has a higher than average unemployment rate.
