Abstract: New Planetary Nebulae (PNe) were discovered through an [O III] 5007 Å emission line survey in the Galactic bulge region with l > 0°. We detected 240 objects, including 44 new PNe. Deep Ha +[N II] CCD images as well as low resolution spectra were obtained for the new PNe in order to study them in detail. Preliminary photo-ionization models of the new PNe with Cloudy resulted in first estimates of the physical parameters and abundances. They are compared to the abundances of Galactic PNe.
