Eni carries out first production test on Zohr field

Italian oil company Eni has performed the production test of Zohr 2X, first appraisal well of Zohr discovery, in the Shorouk block, offshore Egypt.

The Italian company completed the drilling of the first appraisal well of Zohr discovery in February.

On Thursday, Eni reported that, during the test, 120 m of the reservoir were opened to production.

The well, constrained by surface facilities, delivered up to 44 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscfd), the Italian company said.

According to Eni, the comprehensive set of data collected and analyzed have proved that the well has a great production capacity, which is estimated in a deliverability of up to 250 MMScfd in production configuration (about 46 thousand barrel of oil equivalent per day).

The program for 2016 envisages the drilling of further three wells. Besides, the onshore gas treatment plant construction works have already started and the bids for the offshore activities launched and nearly completed.

Eni, through IEOC, holds 100% stake of Shorouk license. Operations are being conducted by Petrobel, which is a joint venture between IEOC and the State partner Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC).
