Eni: Laarich East-1 Well Onshore Tunisia Has 2,000 Bpd Capacity

Eni S.p.A. revealed Monday that the Laarich East-1 well onshore Tunisia has a delivery capacity of approximately 2,000 barrels of oil per day.

The Laarich East-1 well, which was spud in June, has already been connected to production. In the meantime, exploration activities in Tunisia are continuing with the drilling of additional prospects, which have been already identified on 3D Seismic, according to an Eni statement.

Laarich East-1 reached a final depth of 13,487 feet, discovering hydrocarbons in sandstone layers of Silurian and Ordovician age. The drilling of Laarich East-1 is part of Eni’s near field strategy, adopted to cope with the low oil price environment, which aims to conduct exploration activities in the proximity of existing infrastructures with available spare capacity.

Eni owns a 50 percent stake in the Makhrouga-Laarich-Debbech license, where Laarich East 1 is located, with the Tunisian state company ETAP holding the remaining 50 percent stake.
