Eni declares the start-up of the HDLE/HDLS oil field, in Zemlet el Arbi concession in the Berkine North Basin, onshore Algeria, only six months after its discovery in March.
Currently, 10,000 barrels of oil are produced each day by HDLE/HDLS. Through an expedited development strategy that calls for the drilling of new wells in 2023, production will ramp rapidly.
Eni’s unique upstream business strategy, which is centred on the parallelization of project activities, allowed for this accomplishment, which was made possible through collaboration with Sonatrach and the local authorities.
In addition to the recent Berkine South start-up, HDLE/HDLS fast track development would let Algeria produce more than 120,000 boed of equity in 2023, boosting Eni’s position as the primary foreign energy company working in the nation.
