Kuwait Energy starts gas production from Al Jaharaa through new pipeline

Gas production from Kuwait Energy Eqypt-operated Al Jahraa field in Egypt’s western desert through a new ten kilometre gas pipeline to the neighbouring KPC facility has begun, said partner United Oil & Gas Plc.


The pipeline was brought onstream on the 22nd March and increased production from the Abu Sennan concession by 650 boe/d to a gross of about 8,400 boe/d. Production in the concession has more than doubled in 12 months driven in part by ASH-2, which produces over 3,000 b/d.


El Salmiyah 5 infill well drilling operations continue, targeting multiple undrained reservoirs within El Salmiyah field.


Due to the current low oil price, Kuwait Energy Egypt – operator of the Abu Sennan concession – will defer at least two of the four planned 2020 infill wells.


United Oil & Gas owns 22% of Abu Sennan with Kuwait Energy Egypt 25% (operator), Global Connect Ltd. 25%, and Dover Investments 28%.
