Nile Delta gas strike due on production

Eni SPA said a natural gas discovery on the Nooros prospect in Egypt will be placed on production at an unspecified rate within 2 months.

The discovery well, Nidoco NW2 Dir NFW, encountered 60 m of gas pay in Messianian sandstone with “excellent petrophysical properties” and other gas-bearing strata in the overlying Pliocene section.

Drilled to 3,600 m TD, the well is in the Abu Madi West license in the Nile Delta, 120 km northeast of Alexandria.

Eni, which through subsidiary Ieoc Production BV, holds a 75% working interest in the West Abu Madi development lease, estimated potential hydrocarbons in place at 15 billion cu m of gas plus associated condensates.

The discovery well will be tied into the Abu Madi gas treatment plant 25 km southeast.

BP PLC holds a 25% interest in the development lease.

Concession operator is Petrobel, owned equally by Ieoc and Egyptian General Petroleum Corp.
