Eni’s zohr gas production reaches 2.7 bcfd

eni orme 22The production from Zohr field has reached more than 2.7 bcfd, about five months ahead of the plan of development (PoD), oil and gas company Eni said

This result has been achieved following the completion of all eight onshore treatment production units and all Sulphur production units in August, the production start-up of two wells in the southern culmination of the field as well as the start-up on 18 August of the second 216-km long 30 inches pipeline connecting the offshore subsea production facilities to the onshore treatment plant.

The new pipeline, in conjunction with the completion and optimisation of the plant treatment capacity, paves the way to increase, by the year-end, the field potential production rate up to 3.2 bcfd against the POD’s plateau rate of 2.7 bcfd.

The Zohr field, the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea, is located within the offshore Shorouk Block. In the Block, Eni holds a 50 per cent stake, Rosneft 30 pr cent, BP 10 per cent and Mubadala Petroleum 10 per cent of the contractor’s share.

The project is executed by Petrobel, the Operating Company jointly held by Eni and the state corporation Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), on behalf of Petroshorouk, jointly held by Contractor (Eni and its partners) and the state company Egyptian Natural Gas holding Company (EGAS).

Eni has been present in Egypt since 1954, where it is the main producer with approximately 360,000 boepd equity. Such production is expected to further grow within the year, thanks to the ramp-up of Zohr and the start-up of Baltim South West fields.
