The Italian oil company Eni and British oil company BP announced a new gas discovery in the Abu Madi West Development Lease at the Greater Nooros region, with initial reserves of over four trillion cubic feet of gas.


 


The discovery was made after drilling the “Nidoco NW-1” well at a depth of 16 meters underwater, five kilometers from the shore and four kilometers north of the Nooros fields discovered in July 2015.


An Eni statement revealed that the Nidoco NW-1 well contains a layer of gas-bearing sand with a thickness of 100 meters, including 50 meters of sand formations in Kafr el-Sheikh from the Pliocene period and another 50 meters of sandstone from the Mycenaean era.
