Energean bumps up Abu Qir output

Energean has started up a new well on its Abu Qir concession, in Egypt. Abuqir Petroleum, a joint venture of Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. (EGPC) and Energean, has completed a new sidetrack, the NA/Q-PII#6 ST.

Energean said the well had started up with production of 26 million cubic feet per day of gas. It is on the existing NA/Q-PII platform, around 35 km north of the coast.

The company said the well had targeted the BKES and IKES Pliocene reservoirs. It has “significantly exceeded” Energean’s initial expectations. The well encountered an additional layer in the BKES formation, it said, boosting performance.
