The General Petroleum Company (GPC) announced that it managed to add 1,500 barrels of crude oil to its daily production despite the current circumstances and production challenges, according to the General Trade Union for Petroleum Workers (GTUPW).

This achievement was implemented by revitalizing the company’s old fields in the Western Desert and drilling South West Sennan-45 Well, which successfully targeted sandstone reservoir for Abu Rawash C.

This progress is considered a proof that the company’s old wells still have high petroleum potential that only needs more updated geological and engineering studies in order for such success to recur in the future.

It is worth noting that GPC announced in November 2019 that it has discovered a new oil payzone in Abu Rawash D and drilled NES-16 well.
