Energean PLC has delivered first gas from North El Amriya and North Idku (NEA/NI) in shallow water offshore Egypt.

The development includes subsea tieback of four wells to Energean's North Abu Qir PIII platform.

The NEA/NI development contains two discovered and appraised gas fields, Yazzi and Python. NI–which is split into northern 21 and southern areas–contains four discovered gas fields, one of which is readied for development. Both areas contain additional mapped but undrilled prospects. Total 2P reserves are estimated at 39 MMboe (88% gas) with net working interest production expected to peak at 15,000–20,000 boe/d (88% gas) in 2024.

Energean sanctioned the project in January 2021, representing a development period from final investment decision to first gas of 2 years and 2 months (OGJ Online, Jan. 21, 2021).
