    Eni has made a new oil discovery from the NFW well “Rosa North 1X‘, located in the Meleiha Concession, in the Western Desert of Egypt. The drilling of Rosa North 1X is part of Eni’s strategy to refocus exploration activities in Egypt by targeting deeper oil plays in the Western Desert.

    The well encountered a total oil pay of around 80 meters in multiple good-quality sandstones of the Bahariya, Alam El Bueib, Khatatba (Upper & Lower Safa Members) and Ras Qattara reservoirs and has been successfully tested in the reservoirs flowing a 43°-48° API oil at very good rates.

    The development of the discovery foresees the drilling of at least two development wells in 2013. Production for each well is estimated at 2,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd). The production of Rosa North Field is expected to reach 5000 Bopd in the first 12 months and will be delivered to the nearby processing facilities of Meleiha field.
