Eni SPA reported reaching production of 65,000 boe/d from Nooros field offshore northern Egypt. Plans are to increase production to 140,000 boe/d by yearend.
The natural gas and condensate field, discovered in July 2015, produced 15,000 boe/d late last year (OGJ Online, Oct. 29, 2015).
Exploration activities continue. Current production includes wells drilled under the sea from the onshore Abu Madi West concession in the Nile Delta.
Eni sends Noorso gas and condensate to the Abu Madi treatment plant. Eni’s subsidiary IEOC has a 75% stake in the license. BP PLC holds the rest. Petrobel, a joint venture of IEOC and Egyptian General Petroleum Corp., is the operator.
