Energean tests Karish Main well performance

Energean Oil and Gas has conducted a successful production test on the Karish Main-02 development well located offshore Israel. 

Stena DrillMAX

Energean completed the drilling of Karish North, and Karish Main-03 and Karish Main-02 development wells last year. The wells were drilled using the Stena DrillMAX drillship.

The appraisal of the Karish North discovery in November 2019 confirmed best estimate recoverable resources of 0.9 Tcf (25 BCM) plus 34 million barrels of light oil / condensate (combined c.190 mmboe), significantly enhancing Energean’s discovered resource volumes across its Karish and Tanin leases.

In an update on Thursday, Energean announced successful results from production measurement performed during clean-up of the Karish Main-02 development well, which is located on the crest of the Karish Main structure.

KM-02 produced from a 35-meter interval of the C sand reservoir. The well flowed at a maximum rate of 120 million standard cubic feet per day (Mmscf/d) of natural gas, limited only by the capacity of the surface equipment.

According to the company, performance modeling confirms that the well is capable of delivering at the 300 Mmscf/d design capacity when connected to the Energean Power FPSO.

When it comes to Energean’s progress with the construction of the Energean Power FPSO, the company earlier in February said it was working with its contractors in China to mitigate any delay to the FPSO delivery amid coronavirus outbreak. Energean still expects that the Karish Project remains on track to deliver first gas in 1H 2021.
