The field will eventually produce approximately 4.8 million cubic metres of gas per day.

The Seth project consists of a platform placed at a water depth of 80 metres, two production wells and a pipeline of 11km.

The pipeline links the platform to the onshore processing facility in El Gamil, which handles around 20 per cent of the gas produced in Egypt, through the existing transport network.

The partners of the Ras El Barr license are Eni (50 per cent), through its subsidiary IEOC, and BP (50 per cent and operator).
