Waha Oil Company, a NOC subsidiary, completed preparations on another horizontal well in the Faregh field ahead of the planned start of second-phase experimental gas production. Waha is expected to start the second-phase of experimental gas production at the end of Q1 but was able to move the date forward by almost two months.
According to NOC, the initial tests indicate that the B B-14-59 well is expected to produce up to 24 Mmcf/d of gas, and 1,500 bpd of condensate. This well is in addition to the expected 33 Mmcf/d of gas, and 1,400 bpd of condensate production capacity of well B B-10-59, completed in November 2018.
NOC chairman, Mustafa Sanalla thanked staff dedicated to this project and underlined the importance of a refocused Faregh field to provide gas for local community use, and the fostering of further regional economic development.
