In an exclusive interview with Libya Herald, the Media Office of Libya’s Mellitah Oil and Gas Company reported its participation in the specialized scientific oil and gas workshop held Milan from 18-19 October.
Mellitah’s Media Office said that its participation in the Milan event comes within the framework of the participation of all the branches of the Italian company Eni from all countries of the world. At the event, the most prominent solutions, and modern applications in the field of oil and gas were presented. These are solution and applications that have led to increased production, addressed technical operational problems, contributed to improving performance, reducing emissions, and sustaining production equipment for a longer time.
The Mellitah Media Office referred to the scientific paper presented at the event by its participating engineers. The paper focused on how to address the decrease in the efficiency of electrical connections to submerged wells as a result of the decrease in electrical insulation, which caused a loss of production for these wells.
The mitigating measures taken by Mellitah’s Operations and Maintenance Department against this issue was reviewed. These were the application by the Operations and Maintenance Department of new technologies through surface equipment and without the need to resort to costly diving operations,
These achieved remarkable success and led to the restarting of submerged wells and raising natural gas production by 80 million cubic feet per day in the Bahr Al Salam field.
This achievement was one of the most prominent that was presented in the workshop, which received praise and appreciation from all participants, the Media Office reported.
The Mellitah Media Office noted the continuation of development and modernization work at all of its oil sites, especially with regard to the development of its offshore fields as well as its onshore fields. In this regard, Mellitah Company has completed the drilling of oil well No. (FB 34) in the Elephant field, with a production capacity of about (4,000) barrels of oil per day and without the presence of accompanying water.
