Apache Hits Again in Egypt

Apache Corporation announced the completion of a significant discovery well in Egypt's Western Desert on the South Umbarka development lease, in which Apache holds a 100 percent contractor interest. The Khepri 9 tested at the rate of 29.5 million cubic feet of gas and 220 barrels of condensate per day.

The well was completed in the Alam el Bueib (AEB) D-7 sand and tested on a one-inch choke with 1,640 pounds per square inch of flowing wellhead pressure from perforations between 13,340 feet and 13,368 feet. Apache plans to test the D-1 sand next. The Khepri 9 is located approximately 1.2 miles southeast of the Khepri 1 discovery well.

Natural gas production from the 106,253-acre development lease is transported 30 miles via pipeline to Apache's Salam gas plant on the adjacent Khalda Concession.
