United Oil and Gas (UOG) has completed the ASH gas pipeline which connects the ASH field to the existing gas processing facilities at El-Salmiya in Abu Sennan concession.
Per the statement, the operation was completed safely, in a timely manner, and remained under budget. The pipeline was brought onstream on December 27 and has delivered an average of 5.45 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscf/d) of gas since its operation. The pipeline brings about 1,090 barrels of oil equivalent per day (bbloe/d) on a gross basis equating to an additional 1.2 mmscf/d (240 bbloe/d) net to United’s working interest. These initial flow rates are in line with UOG’s expectations. UOG indicated that the ASH gas pipeline is significantly beneficial as now any gas produced from ASH-3 well can be monetized more efficiently.
“Since United entered the Abu Sennan license, the joint venture partners have made excellent progress in increasing production, not just through drilling activity but also through low capital expenditure on infrastructure development. We look forward to further progress in 2021 with the recommencement of drilling activities, starting with the ASH-3 development well,” Brian Larkin, UOG’s CEO, stated.
It should be noted that UOG has a 22% working interest in the concession which is operated by Kuwait Energy Egypt.
