The maintenance and enhancement project will approximately take two weeks and include modifications, modernisation and de-bottlenecking, which will assist in enhancing the plant life, the company added.

Dana Gas aims to expand its production output capacity by 1.3mn cubic metres to 5.6mn cubic metres, and equivalent to 6,650 boepd.

Mark Fenton, general manager, Dana Gas Egypt, said, “A scheduled shutdown of the El Wastani facility for capacity enhancement and maintenance was planned as soon as we had received permission to commercialise the new fields.

“It is a necessary work and the tie-in of the new wells along with the maintenance programme ensures that the plant is also fully upgraded prior to new wells coming on-stream during the year.”

Dana Gas is reportedly the sixth largest gas producer in Egypt and operates in the Nile Delta.

During Q3 2013, the company had announced that it had achieved the highest production levels, equivalent to 41,500 boepd, in Egypt since 2011.
