Wintershall Dea Makes Natural Gas Discovery in the Abu Madi Reservoir

Wintershall Dea has found natural gas in its Disouq concession in the onshore Nile Delta. The step-out well (NSG-3) targeted the Abu Madi reservoir inside the Disouq concession under the development lease. It follows a previous discovery in the East Damanhour exploration block in January 2023. The Disouq gas project is operated by DISOUCO, a Joint Venture between Wintershall Dea and the Egyptian Gas Holding Company (EGAS).

“The latest reserves additions is another example of the great cooperation with our partner EGAS in the Joint Venture and will prolong production at Disouq,” Olaf Reetz, General Manager at the DISOUCO JV, commented. NSG-3 well was drilled to a total depth of 3070 m and encountered 22 m of the reservoir in the Abu Madi formation.

To fast-track production and to maximize economic feasibility, Wintershall Dea is using existing Disouq infrastructures in the vicinity of the well linked into the national natural gas grid. “The additional gas volumes will contribute to Wintershall Dea’s efforts to ensure a secure and sustainable energy future in Egypt,” said Sameh Sabry, Managing Director of Wintershall Dea Egypt.
