Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) has completed repair and maintenance work on the Bouri offshore oilfield, which produces around 30,000 barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil, Reuters reported.

The field is a joint venture (JV) between NOC and Eni and is located approximately 120 kilometers north-west of Tripoli. It is operated by Mellitah Oil and Gas Company.

NOC Chairman Mustafa Sanalla has congratulated the company7 staff on completing the maintenance works two days ahead of schedule in platforms 3 and 4, including the repair of high-pressure valves, pipeline upgrades, well maintenance, and the installation of a new power outage management system, according to a company statement.

It should be noted that NOC and Eni recently announced that they had completed the second phase of the Bahr Essalam offshore gas field project. Phase two of Bahr Essalam offshore project, which is a joint venture (JV) between the two companies operated by NOC subsidiary Mellitah Oil and Gas Company, will increase the field production from 995 million standard cubic feet per day (mscf/d) to 1,100 mscf/d.
