Enppi has announced in a statement published on October 13, 2019, that the first well of the Baltim South West (BSW) field has been put into production at an initial rate of 100 million standard cubic feet per day (mscf/d) through a new offshore production platform connected to the Abu Madi onshore gas plant through a 44-kilometer-long pipeline.
