Eni has made a new gas and condensate discovery offshore Libya.
The discovery is in the Bouri North A1-1/1 exploration well in 125m water depth, in Area D, 140km from the coast and 20km north of the Bouri production field.
Eni says the well encountered gas and condensate in the Metlaoui Group of Eocene age. During the production test, constrained by surface facilities, the well flowed at 1340 boe/d. In production configuration, the well is estimated to deliver in excess of 3000 boe/d.
The well is Eni's second discovery by Eni in Libyan offshore Area D since the beginning of 2015.
Eni, through its subsidiary Eni North Africa, is operator of Contract Area D with 100% working interest in the exploration phase.
Libya is a key production country for Eni, which has been present there since 1959, and currently produces more than 300,000 boe/d from it.
