In 2017, Italian company Eni is planning to raise its Nooros field production to be 1bcf/d of gas instead of its previously detected 700mcf daily production, reported Daily News Egypt.

In related news, Eni was expected to increase gas production from three wells in Nooros field by 180mcf/d in September 2016. A source from EGAS said that the $450m production enhancements of Nooros field will push gas outputs to 700mcf/d by the end of 2016. Current production rates stand at over 350mcf/d in addition to 3,000b/d of condensates.

The increase in Nooros production will balance natural depletion of gas local production due to resource maturity, with annual reductions in gas output reaching  1.2bcf.
