GUPCO developed an emergency plan to repair and re-run many of the stations that have been stalled for a long time, reported Egypt Oil & Gas. The Plan comes in line with the company’s traditional commitment to invest in its infrastructure holdings.

GUPCO’s plan includes re-operating 15 offshore platforms, 7 of the main lines, in addition to internal lines; all of which allowed the company to produce again from 59 wells that were previously closed and boost production by 19,000 b/d of oil to reach a total of 83,000 b/d barrier.

GUPCO has allocated $112m of its budget to upgrade its infrastructure efficiency, setting its sights on investments to avoid the occurrence of any more malfunctions in the old lines while planning to build six new lines and repairing three Flare headers to reduce the risks associated with such worn out infrastructure.
