Eni SPA estimates a natural gas and condensate discovery well in the Bouri North prospect offshore Libya can flow more than 3,000 boe/d when configured for production.
The well, A1-1/1, flowed during a production test at an equipment-constrained rate of 1,340 boe/d through a 64/64-in. choke from the Eocene Metlaoui Group.
The well is in 125 m of water in Area D, 140 km from the coast and 20 km north of giant Bouri oil field.
Earlier this year, Eni tested gas and condensate in another Area D exploratory well, B1-16/4 (OGJ Online, Mar. 16, 2015).
Eni North Africa BV operates Area D with 100% working interest through the exploration phase.
