Zohr natural gas field production rises to 2.7 bcf/d

Zohr production is four months ahead of schedule: Production from the Zohr natural gas field has reached the 2.7 bcf/d mark four months ahead of schedule, Oil Minister Tarek El Molla said in a statement (pdf). This is significantly higher than the figures provided by Rosneft, which last week said production was currently averaging 2.4 bcf/d. The oil ministry’s figures mean that output has increased by 600 mcf/d since February, when the production stood at 2.1 bcf/d. Twelve wells in the field are now producing gas, the statement said. Field operator Eni originally estimated that production would peak at 2.7 bcf/d, but the ministry later said that output would rise above that to 3 bcf/d. Reuters also picked up the story.
