Eni Hits 25,000 BPD at Alaskan Oilfield

change text size

Italy's Eni reported Thursday that it has achieved 25,000 barrels of oil per day at its Nikaitchuq field, offshore the North Slope of Alaska.

The field, which is located under shallow water, holds reserves that are estimated at 200 million barrels of crude oil. The Nikaitchuq field is the first to be operated by Eni in the Arctic region, with production having started in January 2011.

The development of Nikaitchuq has included the drilling of wells and the construction of facilities both on land and on an artificial island built by Eni in the Beaufort Sea. Eni said that the location's extreme climate and environmental constraints required the application of its proprietary technologies and expertise to drill multilaterals, horizontal wells and to build one of the most-advanced production facilities in the North Slope.

Nikaitchuq production is transported through the Trans-Alaska Pipeline to be sold on the market, without the needing further treatment after going through Eni's 40,000-barrel-per-day treatment plant. Eni said it is now working toward achieving the new production target of 30,000 barrels per day during the next 12 months.
