Dana Gas Starts Upgrade for Egypt’s El Wastani Gas Plant

United Arab Emirates’ Dana Gas  said on Friday it is starting a scheduled upgrade and maintenance work for its Egyptian El Wastani gas plant starting Feb 28., which requires a temporary shutdown for about two weeks.

The company said in a statement the upgrades would allow production output from the plant to increase by 25 percent to 200 mmscfd.

“Following the shutdown, the additional capacity will allow increased production from the Salama/Tulip, Faraskur and South Abu El Naga fields via a new pipeline tie-in,” the company said.
