Croatia's INA Starts Production at its 1st Gas Well in Egypt
Croatian oil and gas group INA said on Thursday it has put into production its first gas well in Egypt.
"After the commercial discovery of gas on the East Damanhur block in the Nile Delta at the end of 2022, the gas well was promptly connected to the production infrastructure of the nearby Disouq field and put into production on September 26," INA said in a press release. INA's share of initial gas output is appr. 200 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd).
INA entered the East Damanhur concession in 2021 with a 20% participating interest, with operator Wintershall Dea and partner Cheiron Energy completing exploration activities earlier this year.
INA has been involved in exploration and production activities in Egypt since 1989, focusing mainly on the Western Desert and the Nile Delta, where it is conducting activities on four production concessions – North Bahariya, Ras Qattara, West Abu Gharadig and East Damanhur, and on the exploration concession Ea st Bir El Nus also in the Western Desert.
