Production capacity increased 25% for Egyptian Zohr project


MOSCOW -- Production capacity of Zohr project, developed by the consortium of Eni, Rosneft, BP and Mubadala together with the Egyptian oil and gas companies, has been increased by more than 25% to more than 2 Bcfd. The increase has been achieved due to the commissioning of the fifth train of the gas preparation plant at the site, as well as the start-up of the second export pipeline and new wells.

The development of Zohr field is going ahead of schedule. The current results were achieved just nine months after production start-up in December 2017.

The field is expected to reach production capacity of 2.7 Bcfd by the end of 2019, ahead of schedule. In the first half of 2018 3.1 Bcm of gas was produced at the field.

Projects in the Middle East are one of the strategic directions of development for Rosneft. Participation in the development of the unique Zohr production asset in cooperation with the world majors and the Company’s strategic partners strengthens its positions in this lucrative and strategically important region.
