Kuwait Energy Egypt will bring the Al Jahraa-13 development well onstream in the Abu Sennan license, 7 km north of the producing Al Jahraa field in Egypt's Western Desert, partner United Oil & Gas PLC said in a Dec. 29 release.
The well encountered 17.5 m net pay in the oil-bearing Upper and Lower Bahariya reservoir targets and reached total depth several days ahead of schedule and under budget. The well will be tested and completed in the coming days and will be brought immediately onstream through the existing Al Jahraa infrastructure.
Al Jahraa-13 is the final well in the Abu Sennan 2021 drilling program.
Abu Sennan is operated by Kuwait Energy Egypt (25%). Joint venture partners are United Oil & Gas (22%), Global Connect Ltd. (25%), and Dover Investments (28%).
