Egypt’s Nidoco West-7 well, in Nooros Fied, came online with production rates at 90 million standard cubic feet per day (mscf/d) of natural gas and 720,000 barrels per day (b/d) of condensates, increasing the number of operating wells in Nooros field to 13 wells. The new well’s output boosted the field’s production to 1.15 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas, which is the highest rate in the history of Nile Delta, Egypt Oil & Gas reports.

These data were included in the report submitted by Atef Hassan, Head of Belayim Petroleum Company (Petrobel), for the Egyptian Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tare El Molla, in light of the minister’s continuous follow up on oil and gas production increase plans.

The plan further included drilling Nidoco North West-7 development well, which will increase the number of wells to 14 wells and boost output to 1.2 bcf/d of natural gas, the report pointed out.

Atef had previously reviewed the positive results in Nooros natural gas field, boosting Nidoco production to around 1.2 bcf/d upon adding two new wells to production, in addition to a new well that is currently being drilled.
