Dana Gas PJSC, Sharjah, reports Zora gas field offshore Sharjah and Ajman has started production with optimization under way to boost flow to a planned 40 MMcfd (OGJ Online, Nov. 19, 2013).

The field produces from two wells drilled laterally into a Lower Cretaceous Thamama reservoir straddling the Sharjah-Ajman offshore boundary. The gas flows by a 35-km pipeline from a platform in 24 m of water to an onshore processing plant in the Hamriyah Free Zone in Sharjah.

Dana Gas, operator with 100% interest, describes the field as a tilted fault block structure with fault and dip closure of 25 sq km.
