Eni: new oil discovery in western desert of Egypt

Eni: new oil discovery in western desert of Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Eni has made a new oil discovery from the NFW well “Rosa North 1X‘, located in the Meleiha Concession, in the Western Desert of Egypt. The drilling of Rosa North 1X is part of Eni's strategy to refocus exploration activities in Egypt by targeting deeper oil plays in the Western Desert.(...)

The development of the discovery foresees the drilling of at least two development wells in 2013. Production for each well is estimated at 2,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd). The production of Rosa North Field is expected to reach 5000 Bopd in the first 12 months and will be delivered to the nearby processing facilities of Meleiha field.(...)

 

 Eni has been present in Egypt since 1954 and is the largest foreign energy player in the country. In 2011, the company’s oil and natural gas equity production averaged approximately 240,000 boe/d. In the Western Desert, Eni’s activities are currently producing around 53,000 boe/d from 6 different development leases.

Petroceltic to increase Egypt production following successful development drilling

Petroceltic to increase Egypt production following successful development drilling | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The newly drilled well on the South Damas field, in Egypt’s Nile Delta, has penetrated 96 feet of high quality gas-bearing sands. The well is expected to lift production to over 20mln cubic feet per day (cfpd) from 12 cfpd. 

Separately another well, the East Dikirnis 1 development well has now been brought online after it was tied into the field’s facilities. The well is currently producing oil at a rate of 150 barrels a day, and later in its life its will switch to produce gas. 


"We are very happy with the progress we are making in our development projects in Egypt whilst the South Damas - 2 drilling results are particularly pleasing."
