New Planetary Nebulae (PNe) were discovered through an [O III] 5007 Å emission line survey in the Galactic bulge region with $l >$ 0$^{\circ}$. We detected 240 objects, including 44 new PNe. Deep H$\alpha +$[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.
