The well, the Nedoko, is the fifteenth well drilled on Nooros to date. According to the country’s energy minister, Tarek El Molla, the well will be able to produce an estimated 5.09 Mmcm/d of gas.
The well will help maintain the output from the Nooros field at 34 Mmcm/d, which is currently the highest production rate of any of Egypt’s fields.
