Energean receives approval to develop Katakolo field in Western Greece


LONDON -- Energean Oil & Gas has announced that it has received approval for its Field Development Plan (FDP) for the development of Kataloko field in Western Greece from Hellenic Hydrocarbons Resources Management, the Greek government agency responsible for the hydrocarbon sector in the country.

The FDP application was submitted in February 2017 after Energean secured the 25-year exploitation concession, announced in November 2016, and involves the development of the field through extended reach wells from an onshore location in the area. The $50-million development plan is targeting the 11 MMboe of recoverable oil that was discovered in the early 1980s by the state owned Public Petroleum Corporation, but remained undeveloped for decades.

Energean holds a 100% working interest and is the operator of the block.

Energean plans to develop Katakolo alongside its two other current development projects, Prinos oil field, which is part of the Prinos Concession located offshore North East Greece, and the 2.4 Tcf (2C) Karish and Tanin gas fields, offshore Israel, that also received FDP approval by the Israeli Government in August 2017.

Energean will now commence the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for Katakolo, which will be submitted for approval in 2018. Upon approval, the Company intends to take a Final Investment Decision (FID) on the project and drill the first wells in 2019, with first oil expected in 2020.
