Eni Touts Potential 3.5-Tcf Gas Find With First Offshore Abu Dhabi Well
Fast-track development options are currently under review for the discovery.
Eni believes it has discovered an additional 1.0 to 1.5 Tcf of raw gas in place, in a deeper zone, in its first exploration well drilled in Offshore Block 2 Abu Dhabi. The discovery follows an initial finding in a shallower zone of the same well, aggregating to a total gas in place of up to 3.5 Tcf.
The Italian operator said gas-bearing reservoirs were tested with excellent flow rates and fast‑track development options are currently under evaluation.
Eni, operator, holds a 70% stake in Block 2; PTTEP holds the remaining 30%.
Eni has been present in Abu Dhabi since 2018. It operates three exploration concessions and participates with ADNOC in three offshore development and production concessions: Lower Zakum (5%), Umm Shaif and Nasr (10%), and Ghasha (25%).
