Eni starts drilling two new wells at Zohr natural gas field
Italy’s Eni started drilling two additional wells at the offshore Zohr natural gas field as it prepares to raise output to its 2.7 bcf/d plateau next year, an unnamed source from EGAS tells Al Shorouk.
The addition brings the total number of wells in the project to 13.
Sources said that work on them should be complete within a month and will determine how many other wells Eni will need to drill to hits its target.
Eni had announced plans earlier this month to increase its investments in the Zohr gas field to USD 16 billion, up from USD 12 billion, by the time it completes the field’s development in July 2019. Production from the field hit 2 bcf/d last month.
