Eni, BP unveil new gas discovery in Egypt’s Nile Delta

The Italian oil company Eni and British Petroleum revealed a new gas discovery in the Great Nooros Area, located in the Abu Madi West Development Lease, in the conventional waters of the Nile Delta, offshore Egypt.

This new discovery is located in 16 meters of water depth, 5 km from the coast and 4 km north from the Nooros field, discovered in July 2015, according to a statement posted on Eni’s website.

“The preliminary evaluation of the well results, considering the extension of the reservoir towards north and the dynamic behavior of the field, together with the recent discoveries performed in the area, indicates that the Great Nooros Area gas in place can be estimated in excess of 4 Tcf,” the statement explained.
