RWE Dea Reports on Hydrocarbon Discovery at West Mediterranean Block 1

RWE Dea has announced a further exploration success. The Dekhila-1x well has hit gas and oil in the West Mediterranean Block 1 concession.

Drilling operations on the Dekhila-1x exploration well on the West Mediterranean Block 1 concession have recently been completed. The well, which is located 45 miles offshore within the Nile Delta Basin, was drilled to a depth of 2,706 meters in 1,183 meters of water and found a gross hydrocarbon section of 45 meters at multiple intervals.   The well was drilled by the Pride North America.

RWE Dea has held since 2001 a 35 percent working interest in the production sharing arrangement with the Egyptian state company, Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC). The company’s partners are Hess (55 percent) and Kufpec (10 percent).

“The results of Dekhila 1-x in Egypt provide valuable information which will be incorporated into engineering studies for the wider West Mediterranean development," said Hans-Hermann Andreae, General Manager of RWE Dea Egypt.
