Eni Flows Gas at Zohr, Offshore Egypt
Eni announced Thursday that well Zohr 2X on the Zohr field, located in the Shorouk block offshore Egypt, delivered up to 44 million standard cubic feet of gas per day during production tests.
The well, which was constrained by surface facilities, has an estimated production capacity of up to 250 MMScfd, according to an Eni statement, which is equivalent to around 46,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Three further wells are scheduled to be drilled on the field in 2016. The construction of an onshore gas treatment plant has already started and bids launched for offshore activities associated with the field are “nearly completed”.
Eni, through IEOC, holds a 100 percent interest in the Shorouk license. The Italian energy firm has been present in Egypt since 1954 and its equity production in the country was about 200,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day last year.
