A press release to Egypt Oil&Gas stated that Egypt’s Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tarek El Molla, received a report from Balaeim Petroleum Company (Petrobel)’s Chairman, Atef Hassan, about the results and updates on drilling Nedoko field (West-4) among the project of developing Nooros field in Nile Delta.

In addition, the report informed that Nedoko field was put online with a production capacity of 175mcf/d of gas and 1400b/d of condensates. It is worth noting that the production from Egypt’s Nooros field has exceeded 1bcf/d of gas.

The report also mentioned that the well was drilled in the myosin layer at a depth of 3200m below sea surface. The drilling continued for 50 days, which is a new record. Thus the company’s production rate of natural gas increased, after putting this well online, by 1612mcf/d of gas for the first time in years.

Moreover, Petrobel has succeeded in achieving a new record as it increased the production rate by 408.000 boe in April 2017 as a result of the Ministry’s support and collaboration between EGAS, EGPC, BP and Italy’s Eni.
