Mediterranean oil & gas: Guendalina 3 production shut down
BY RORY GALLIVAN
LONDON -- Mediterranean Oil & Gas said that its subsidiary Medoilgas Italia was told by the operator ENI that on August 30, production from the short string of well Guendalian-3 was shut down due to low pressure.
An operations team was on site and production recovery operations were started immediately to assess the issue.
Diagnostic temperature and pressure profiles were collected which indicate a reduction in the performance and permeability of the well completion.
As of September 10, 2013; the production from the short string of Guendalian-3 remains shut in.
The short string accounted for approximately 49% of the production at Guendalina prior to the shut in.
Post shut in, the Guendalina Field is producing about 34,000 Scm per day net to MOG; MOG has a 20%, ENI a 80% working interest.
Remedial operations are planned and a further update will be provided to the market in due course.
