London, 11 June 2020:
Libya’s state National Oil Corporation (NOC) and its subsidiary, Zallaf Libya for Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Company, held a virtual meeting today to discuss the plan presented by Zallaf for the optimal development of the Erawin field through a series of long-term tests of wells. The meeting also agreed on the proposed plan for these tests that will give the best results.
It will be recalled that the Erawin field was planned to go into production by the end of this year.
In February this year Zallaf had held two meetings with Britain’s Petrofac to discuss the implementation of the construction of surface production equipment and pipelines for crude oil transportation. In their 3 February meeting Zallaf had reported that it had discussed a proposed pipeline that would transport oil from the Erawin field to the Sharara field and its schedule timeline.
In September 2019 the NOC had reported that together with Zallaf, it had held a meeting in Tunis with leading U.S. independent oil consulting firm De Golyer and MacNaughton (D&M) discussed development plans for discovered and undeveloped fields.
The NOC had reported that the three entities would work together to prepare technical studies and outline plans to develop discovered and undeveloped fields.
It had said that all parties expressed their desire to enhance their relations by initiating reservoir and field development studies, assessing reserves, and preparing development plans for discovered and undeveloped fields.
The NOC had said that it sought to put these plans on the production line as soon as possible in order to increase oil and gas production rates and ensure continuous supplies to electricity generation plants.
The meeting had also touched upon an extensive study of oil and gas resources and the application of the latest recovery techniques in the Sirte, Ghadames and Murzuq basins, the NOC had reported.
