Eni and BP have made a new gas find in the Great Nooros area, in the Abu Madi West lease offshore Egypt.
The company drilled the Nidoco NW-1 exploration well in 16 metres of water, 5 km from the coast in the Nile Delta. The well is 4 km from the Nooros field, which was discovered in mid-2015 and rapidly brought into production.
Eni found 100 metres of gas-bearing sands at the Nidoco NW-1 well. It found 50 metres in the Pliocene sands of the Kafr-El-Sheik formation and another 50 metres in the Messinian-age sandstone of the Abu Madi formations.
