The Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources managed to save nearly $60,000 that was spent on the rent of a temporary treatment plant for the natural gas produced from Nooros field after finalizing the Nooros- Abu Madi- El Gamil pipeline project in May, Alborsanews reported citing an official source.

The $300 million project transports around 700 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) of natural gas through two pipelines. The first one is from Nooros field to the gas treatment plant in Abu Madi and the second is from Abu Madi’s plant to be treated in El Gamil plant, which pump natural gas into the national grid, according to the source.

The source added that the remaining production of Nooros field, estimated at around 400 mmcf/d of natural gas has been treated at a temporary rented plant, thus the total natural gas production will be around 1.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d).

Additionally, the source noted that the execution of such new projects contributed greatly on increasing natural gas production in Egypt at an unprecedented rate.

It is noteworthy that Enppi executed the design work of the project, meanwhile Petrojet carried out casing the lines and constructions.
