Eni strikes gas off Libya

The Italian energy company Eni has made a new discovery of gas and condensates offshore Libya.

The discovery was made in the Gamma prospect in the Contract Area D. It is located 15 km south west of the Bouri field and 5 km north of the Bahr Essalam field.

The drilling of the Gamma prospect is part of the “near field” exploration strategy of Eni, targeting opportunities, that in case of success can exploit synergies with existing infrastructures reducing the time to market and providing additional gas to the local market and export, Eni said in a statement.

The well, drilled in 150 metres of water depth, reached a total depth of 2,981 metres (9,780 feet) and encountered gas and condensates in the Metlaoui Group of Eocene age, according to the statement

The well has the capacity to deliver, in production configuration, in ecxess of 7,000 Boepd and represents a further discovery made by Eni in Libyan offshore Area D, following the discoveries made in 2015, it added.

Eni, through its subsidiary Eni North Africa BV, is operator of Contract Area D with a 100% working interest in the exploration phase.
