DEKA natural gas flow starts offshore Egypt

Production has begun from the Denise-Karawan (DEKA) natural gas development offshore the Nile Delta in Egypt.

Eni SPA, which owns operator IEOC Production BV, said the Denise South 6 subsea development well produced 1.8 million cu m/day of gas and about 800 b/d of condensate.

The well is on the Temsah concession in 100 m of water 65 km north of Port Said.

The DEKA project will develop gas discoveries with five subsea wells, subsea production systems, and marine pipelines to carry produced fluids to processing equipment at the El Gamil gas plant onshore.

Peak production of 6.5 million cu m/day is expected in first-quarter 2015.

IEOC holds a 50% working interest in the concession through Belayim Petroleum Co. (Petrobel), its 50-50 joint venture with Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. BP Egypt holds the other 50% working interest.
