Zohr Output Hits 2.7 Billion Cubic Feet Per Day
Production from the Zohr field offshore Egypt has now reached more than 2.7 billion cubic feet per day.

Production from the Zohr field offshore Egypt has now reached more than 2.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), according to Eni.

The start-up of a second 30-inch pipeline at the asset enabled production to grow, Eni revealed in a company statement sent to Rigzone on Wednesday. In a statement posted on Twitter, Eni described its latest production milestone at Zohr as “remarkable”.

 

 

In September last year, Eni announced that Zohr was producing 2 Bcf/d, equivalent to approximately 365,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The Zohr field, which is described by Eni as the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea, is located within the offshore Shorouk Block. Eni holds a 50 percent stake in the block’s contractor share, with Rosneft holding a 30 percent stake, and BP and Mubadala Petroleum each holding a 10 percent stake.

The production start-up of Zohr was announced in December 2017, after being discovered in August 2015. Eni has been present in Egypt since 1954.
