Americas Petrogas says that since late January 2014, all of the Company's conventional operations at Medanito Sur have been powered via the generation of electricity from produced gas. Currently, approximately 320 to 350 thousand cubic feet per day (Mscf/d) is used for power generation, process heating and gas compression, while the remainder of the gas production is being injected into the El Jabali Field.
In April 2014, the gas reinjection program at the El Jabali field on the Medanito Sur block was fully operational, injecting approximately 1 million cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) or more into the reservoir. The gas reinjection capacity is approximately 7 MMscf/d. More recently, gas reinjection has increased to approximately 2.8 MMscf/d.
