Egypt looks to raise Zohr output to 700 mcf/d in May

Egypt is looking to raise output from the Zohr offshore gas field to 700 mcf/d in May, Oil Minister Tarek El Molla tells Reuters’ Arabic service. The field officially went live in December 2017, with production beginning at an initial rate of 350 mcf/d. El Molla had said at the time that output would rise to about 1 bcf/d by June, while Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi said in February that the goal is to reach output of 1.8-2 bcf/d by the end of 2018 and then ramp up to 2.9 bcf/d by mid-2019.
