Zohr Development Reaches 83.5%

Development at the Zohr gas field has reached 83.5%, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources told Amwal Al Ghad.

Work at the site is currently focused on linking first-stage wells in order to permit the production of gas later this year, according to the head of Petro Shourouk, Atef Hassan. He told the Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Tarek El Molla, that seven wells have been drilled and their production capacities have been confirmed.

Petro Shorouk, a subsidiary of Petrobel, is constructing the offshore control platform for the Zohr gas field.

The Petroleum Projects and Technical Consultations Company (Petrojet) recently completed its production of subsea manifolds for the field, according to Egypt Oil & Gas, though the manifolds must still be installed at the site.

The Zohr gas field, estimated to hold up to 32 trillion cubic feet (tcf), was discovered by Eni, an Italian energy company, in 2015.
