Cumulative production has exceeded 5.2 million bbl of 42° gravity oil on the NW Gemsa concession, operated by Vegas Oil & Gas with 50% interest. Circle Oil PLC has 40% and Sea Dragon 10%.

The Geyad-3C well, which confirms a southeasterly extension of Geyad field, is flowing 2,430 b/d of oil and 2.53 MMscfd of gas on a 32/64-in. choke from the Shagar member of the Miocene Kareem formation. Shagar sands were encountered 122 ft higher than prognosis with 14 ft of net oil pay. The well also cut 5 ft of oil pay in Belayim sands. The next well is Geyad-5C.

Water injection is to start late June in Al Amir SE field.

Meanwhile, Al Baraka field in the Kom Ombo field in southern Egypt is 800 b/d.
