Suncor starts Ebla gas deliveries in Syria

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 20
-- Suncor Energy Inc., Calgary, started commercial gas deliveries from the $1.2 billion (Can.) Ebla gas development in central Syria through facilities with a capacity of 80 MMcfd.

The project covers more than 300,000 acres in Ash Shaer and Cherrife fields in the Central Syrian gas basin. The Ebla development comprises the gas producing wells, a gas gathering and compression station, 80 km of pipeline, and a gas treatment plant.

The plant extracts condensate and liquefied petroleum gas. Gas deliveries began Apr. 19 to the Syrian national gas grid for the local market.

Suncor operates in Syria through its Petro-Canada subsidiary. Petro-Canada entered Syria in 2002, via the purchase of Veba Oil & Gas assets.

In late 2006 Petro-Canada became the operator of the production-sharing agreement for Ash Shaer and Cherrife fields in the Palmyra region and the associated Ebla gas development project.

Under the terms of the PSC, Petro-Canada and General Petroleum Corp. will form an operating company that will have the operating responsibility for the Ebla gas development.
