Western Desert Operating Petroleum Company’s (WEPCO) production has reached 3,500 barrels per day (bbl/d) after streamlining well Badr 4-6, according to a statement.

The new development well (Badr 4-6) has added about 500 bbl/d to the state-owned company’s production. Production has increased in the past five months by 1,500 bbl/d, bringing the total production from 2,000 bbl/d to 3,500 bbl/d.
