RWE Dea starts up Egypt’s Disouq gas treatment plant

RWE Dea AG has started gas production from the central treatment plant (CTP) of the Disouq development project in Egypt.

Production started at 45 MMscfd and has reached about 90 MMscfd. With the North West Khilala gas plant, producing since September 2013, the Disouq rate is about 150 MMscfd.

The CTP is “a significant milestone in advancing production growth from our Egyptian assets,” said Dirk Warzecha, chief operating officer of RWE Dea AG. “We started the project during difficult times in the country, which required special measures for security and logistics.”

The company expects increases in the CTP and North West Khilala to result in production of about 200 MMscfd in 2015.

Maximilian Fellner, general manager of RWE Dea Egypt, said the company plans to connect seven additional wells to the CTP and bring them on stream in 2015.

The CTP produces gas from five wells three fields: North Sidi Ghazy, South Sidi Ghazy, and North West Sidi Ghazy. Gas produced from the North West Khilala field is processed in the North West Khilala gas plant (OGJ Online, Apr. 30, 2014).

The Disouq project encompasses development of seven gas fields in the Nile Delta.

RWE Dea’s partner in the project is Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Co. Production is operated by the joint venture Suez Oil Company.

RWE Dea has 10 onshore and offshore concessions in Egypt.

With the launch of the CTP, RWE Dea will boost its oil and gas production in Egypt by 50% to 44,000 boe/d.
