RWE to start Egypt Nile Delta Disouq gas flow in 2013

RWE Dea plans to start gas production from the Disouq concession in Egypt’s onshore Nile Delta in 2013 after its North Sidi Ghazy-1-2 development well yielded positive results.

NSG-1-2, 100 km north of Cairo, went to 2,843 m true vertical depth on the field’s east side and flowed gas at the rate of 35 MMscfd from the Mio-Pliocene Abu Madi formation. It confirmed the NSG-1x discovery, which forms the core asset of the Disouq development project.

RWE in conjunction with Egyptian Natural Gas Holdilng Co. and Suez Oil Co. will develop seven gas discoveries in the first phase of the project that will supply gas to the domestic market.

RWE Dea has moved the rig to the South Sidi Ghazy-1-2 well to develop the northern extent of the South Sidi Ghazy-1x discovery. The North and South Sidi Ghazy wells and three Northwest Khilala wells will be tied back to North Sidi Ghazy central treatment facilities as part of the project’s first phase.

The 5,375 sq km Disouq concession was awarded to RWE Dea in July 2004. RWE Dea has 12 onshore and offshore concessions in Egypt covering a combined 19,000 sq km.
