The General Petroleum Company (GPC) has made a new natural gas discovery in Abu Sennan concession producing 28 million cubic feet per day (mcbf/d) in addition to 1,180 barrels of condensates per day of API 64° when it is opened one inch, according to General Trade Union for Petroleum Workers (GTUPW)
Moreover, the well is producing about 15 mcf/d and about 1,100 b/d of condensates when it is opened 0.75 inch.
The well was drilled in a record time of 15 days and was supplemented by using GPC’s well repair device and thus saving a large portion of the drilling rig time and the total cost of the well.
The initial evaluation for the well storage reached to 8 billion cubic feet equivalent (bcfe) to five billion exploitable reserves after conducting subsurface tests and compression measurements. Plans are currently prepared to develop and exploit the new discovery.
This came in the light of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources strategy to intensify exploration operations in the different areas of the company to increase the production of petroleum products as well as exploit the company’s assets and test the closed wells.
