Tunis, 19 May 2015:
A week after ENI announced it had reached production levels that exceed those before the -revolution, the . . .[restrict]Italian-owned oil giant and Libya’s National Oil Corporation has now announced a new offshore gas discovery in the Sabratha Basin.
ENI made the discovery through the 10/01.1 A exploratory well in contract Area D at a estimated depth of 405 metres in the Sabratha Basin, 140 kilometres from the Libyan coast. The discovery lies some 20 kilometres north of the massive Bouri gas field. In testing, the find produced some 868 barrels per day of condensate.
This is the second discovery for ENI in the M.N 41 area this year. The company operates a number of offshore and onshore oilfields in Libya, such as the El Fil and Wafa fields in the southwest of the country, and Abu Tifil in the southeast at the Al-Wahat area. ENI also operates Mellitah treatment and compressor plant in west Libya and the offshore Bouri and Bahr Essalam fields. [/restrict]
