RWE Dea Egypt ramps up gas production at Disouq

RWE Dea Egypt has ramped up natural gas production through its North West Khilala-1-4 (NWK-1-4) development well, which is part of the Disouq gas project in the Egyptian Nile Delta.

The well, the company’s fourth on stream at Disouq, was flowed at a rate of 17 MMcfd during clean-up testing. The well was successfully drilled in March to delimit the northwestern part of the North West Khilala (NWK) field (OGJ Online, Mar. 14, 2014).

The company said output will be boosted by several additional wells and the start-up of the central treatment plant later this year.

RWE Dea said NWK field has now reached its production target of 60 MMcfd of gas.

The RWE Dea-operated Disouq project encompasses the development of seven gas fields in the Nile Delta and NWK was the first field brought into production in September 2013 (OGJ Online, Sept. 10, 2013). RWE Dea, along with Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Co. and Suez Oil Co., plans to produce a total of 430 bcf of gas from the seven gas fields in the first phase of the project.
