MEDITERRANEAN SEA, ISRAEL – MARCH 28: In this handout image provided by Albatross, The Tamar drilling natural gas production platform is seen some 25 kilometers West of the Ashkelon shore on March 28, 2013 in Israel. The offshore Tamar drilling site which was originally dispatched from a shipyard in Texas at the end of last year is due to start producing natural gas next week. Over the past few years Israel has suffered from a shortage in natural gas, but with the new platform that weighs 34,000 tons and will be mainly operated by Israelis, the US company Nobel Energy which owns a 36% stake in Tamar, hopes to change Israel’s energy situation as well as the economy as a whole.

Eni has announced that they have started operations at the second production unit at Egypt’s Zohr natural gas field, Amwal Al Ghad reported.

The Italian company plans to increase the field’s output to reach 1.2 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas in May 2018, and 2 bcf/d before the end of 2018.

The company predicts the production ceiling to reach 2.7 bcf/d in 2019.

Zohr field’s output increased to reach 700 million standard cubic feet per day (mscf/d) on April 23, according to Amwal Al Ghad.

The increase came after the company successfully linked the first production line with 350 mscf/d capacity, a source revealed to the newspaper.

The source added that the second 350 mscf/d capacity line will be connected during the first half of May 2018, bringing the total production to around 1.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas.
