Source: www.oilegypt.com 4/5/2009, Location: Africa

Dana Gas, the Middle East's first and largest regional private sector natural gas company, announced that it has achieved its first highly deviated/horizontal well in Egypt.

The El Wastani East-2 side track well (EWE-2st) was drilled and completed in March 2009 in the East El Wastani development lease in the Nile Delta region. Gas production from EWE-2st started on March 30th, 2009, at an initial rate of 4.5 mmscfd gas, which will increase after the well has been cleaned up. EWE-2st production is being processed in the company’s El Wastani plant facilities.

The Dana Gas’ Upstream Executive Director, Mr. Ahmed Al-Arbeed, said that the company is very pleased with this latest success and will continue its aggressive drilling plan in Egypt in the year 2009. “The experience gained in the successful horizontal drilling of EWE-2st will have a positive impact on the company’s plans to further develop its existing fields where horizontal drilling is expected to enhance productivity. The company has now started production from the first gas discovery in 2008 and will continue its efforts to develop and produce the remaining three other discoveries; Salma, Azhar, and Sondos (Haggag) in 2009/2010”.
