Eni has completed the gradual linkage of the production of the first well in Baltim field southwest with a capacity of 50m cubic feet per day(scf/day), to increase the company’s production rates and compensate for the natural decline of wells.
The Baltim field contains about six gas wells with an average production ranging from 75m to 100m scf/day and it is planned to complete the drilling and completion of 5 more wells during 2019/20, bringing the total production of the field about 500m scf/day.
Eni has extended an 18 km, 26-inch offshore line and 25 km and 26 inches onshore line and manufactured and installed the offshore production platform within the development work of the Baltim South-West field three months ahead of schedule.
The discovery, which is 12 km offshore, is a new gathering similar to the Nooros field, which was discovered in July 2015. Baltim southwest is located in the Mediterranean 12 km offshore across from the Abu Madi fields.
