7/5/2018

MILAN -- National Oil Corporation (NOC) and Eni announce that Mellitah Oil & Gas, Eni and NOC joint venture company (50/50), has started production from the first well of the offshore Bahr Essalam Phase 2 project. This comes just three years after the final investment decision. Two further wells will begin production within a week. An additional seven wells will come onstream by October 2018.

Phase 2 of the project completes the development of the largest offshore producing gas field in Libya, increasing production potential by 400 MMscfd. Phase 2 will be completed between September and October, bringing total field production to 1,100 MMscfd. Bahr Essalam, located about 120 km northwest of Tripoli, contains over 260 Bcm of gas. This is delivered through the Sabratha platform to the Mellitah onshore treatment plant before principally being used to supply the national network.

Chairman of the Presidential Council of Libya and Prime Minister of the Government of the National Accord, Fayez Al-Saraj, attended the opening ceremony and thanked the workers of NOC, Eni and Mellitah Oil & Gas for their efforts in developing the Libyan oil & gas sector.
