Eni Is Planning To Drill Nidoco NW-1 DIR In Great Nooros Area

Published on : 2020-07-04
In June 2016, Baltim South West was discovered, with BP and operator Eni both having a 50 percent interest. It is located 10km north of the Nooros field, in the development lease (DL) area of Baltim South, and has enhanced the importance of the Great Nooros Area, which has the overall potential of around three trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of gas; with two Tcf in the Nooros deposit and the remainder in Baltim South West. During 2019, the Baltim South West offshore project (Eni operator with a 50% interest) was completed with a production start-up.

Development activities concerned the installation of a production platform and the pipeline to the Abu Madi treatment plant. The start-up was achieved just 19 months from the FID confirming the success of Eni’s strategy in a fast-track approach to developing and start-up projects.

In July 2020 Eni drilled the first exploration well in the conventional Egyptian waters of the Nile Delta, on the prospect called Bashrush.

The discovery, which further extends to the west the gas potential from the Great Nooros Area, is located 12 km North-West from the Nooros field and about 1 km west of the Baltim South West field, both already in production.
"We will begin screening the development options of this new discovery, with the aim of fast-tracking production through synergies with the area’s existing infrastructures, together with our partners BP and Total, in coordination with the Egyptian Petroleum Sector.
In parallel with the development activities, we will continue to explore the Great Nooros Area with the drilling of another exploration well called Nidoco NW-1 DIR, located in the Abu Madi West concession".
