The Zohr started in 2015

Zohr

Zohr is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea and will be able to satisfy a part of Egypt’s natural gas demand for decades to come. Eni has produced its first gas from the supergiant Zohr field in a record time for this type of field, less than two and a half years from the discovery. For this reason, it is one of seven record-breaking projects from Eni, all of which are remarkable for their rapid approval rates and times to start-up. In May 2018 Eni announces the start-up of the third production unit (T-2) of the Zohr project, increasing the installed capacity to 1.2 bcfd. Zohr is now producing 1.1 bcfd in ramp-up, equivalent to approximately 200 thousand boed, of which 75,000 boed net to Eni at current working interest. The third unit, following just one week after the second unit’s successful power-up, confirms the programme pursued by Eni, its co-venturers and Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS) to pursue a production level of 2 bcfd by end 2018, followed by a plateau of 2.7 bcfd in 2019.
