Eni, BP and Total have successfully tested the well drilled in the Bashrush prospect in the North El Hammad concession, in the conventional Egyptian waters of the Nile Delta.

The well, operated by Eni, has been opened to test potentiality of production, and it delivered up to 32 million ft3/d of gas. The test rate was limited by surface testing facilities. The well deliverability in production configuration is estimated at up to 100 million ft3/d of gas and 800 bpd of condensate.

Eni, together with its partners BP and Total and in coordination with Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company, will continue screening the development options of Bashrush, with the aim of fast tracking production through synergies with the area's existing infrastructures.

In the North El Hammad concession, which is in participation with the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), Eni through its affiliate IEOC holds 37.5% interest and the role of operator, BP holds 37.5%, and Total holds 25% of the contractor share.
