3/10/2016

MILAN -- Eni has successfully performed the production test of Zohr 2X, the first appraisal well on the Zohr discovery, in the Shorouk block, offshore Egypt.

During the test, 120 m of the reservoir were opened to production. The well, constrained by surface facilities, delivered up to 44 MMscfgd. The comprehensive set of data collected and analyzed has proved that the well has a great production capacity, which is estimated to be up to 250 MMscfgd (about 46,000 boed).

The 2016 work program envisages the drilling of three additional wells. In addition, the onshore gas treatment plant construction works have already started, and the bids for the offshore activities launched and nearly completed.

Eni, through IEOC, holds a 100% stake in the Shorouk license. Operations are being conducted by Petrobel, which is a joint venture between IEOC and the state partner Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC).
