The Egyptian Fields Development Company (EFDC) prepare for its first operations in the fields of General Petroleum Company (GPC).

 

The GPC fields are characterized by their heavy oil, 12-18 API, located in the Eastern Desert and in the area of Abu Senan in the Western Desert.

 

A year ago, EFDC submitted a request to develop the GPC fields after it managed to receive approvals to utilize the production facilities of some Egyptian companies operating in the same area.

 

The company is also planning to develop the Jazurina Field producing 15,000 bpd of crude oil, held by the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), which was operated by the U.S Marathon Company.

It is worth mentioning that this is the first operation to be held by EFDC since its establishment last year.
