Eni has made three new oil and gas discoveries on its Meleiha concession in Egypt’s Western Desert for approximately 8,500 barrels/day of oil equivalent.
The discoveries have already been tied into production, in line with Eni’s infrastructure-led exploration strategy, the company said.
“The results were obtained through Nada E Deep 1X well, which encountered 60m of net hydrocarbon pay in the Cretaceous-Jurassic Alam El Bueib & Khatatba formations, Meleiha SE Deep 1X well, which found 30m of net hydrocarbon pay in the Cretaceous-Jurassic sands of the Matruh & Khatatba formations, and Emry Deep 21 well, which encountered 35m of net hydrocarbon pay in the massive cretaceous sandstones of Alam El Bueib,” Eni said.
The results, along with discoveries from last year for a total of eight exploration wells, give a 75 percent success rate and confirm the potential of the area, Eni said.
Other exploration activities in the concession are ongoing with promising indications, it added.
