Energean plc on Thursday confirmed that first gas has been safely delivered at North El Amriya and North Idku (“NEA/NI”), offshore Egypt.
In an announcement, Energean said the gas is being produced from the NEA#6 well, while the remaining three wells are expected to be brought online over the course of 2023. The NEA/NI development, located in shallow water, offshore Egypt, contains an estimated 39 mmboed of 2P reserves (88% gas) with net working interest production expected to peak at 15-20 kboed (88% gas) in 2024.
The development leverages existing infrastructure and involves the subsea tieback of four wells to Energean’s North Abu Qir PIII platform.
Energean sanctioned the project in January 2021, representing a development period from final investment decision to first gas of 2 years and 2 months.
