The development of RWE Dea’s natural gas project Disouq in the Egyptian Nile Delta is progressing successfully. The company confirmed another positive appraisal of the North West Khilala (NWK) Gas Field with the development well NW Khilala-1- 4.
RWE Dea’s operated Disouq project encompasses the development of seven gas fields in the Nile Delta and NWK is the first field brought into production last September. NWK-1-4 is the fourth well to be drilled in the NWK structure and reached a total measured depth of 3,175 metres in the Abu Madi Formation. The well was drilled to test the northwestern limits of the field 2.8 kilometres from the NWK-1x discovery. NWK-1-4 was successfully flowed at about 450,000 standard cubic metres gas per day during clean-up testing which is in line with expectations at this location.
