SDX Energy Plc (LON:SDX) told investors that the South Disouq gas field has now achieved its targeted stabilised plateau production rate, of 50mln cubic feet per day, three months earlier than initially expected.
Gas has now been flowing to the South Disouq central processing facility since 7 November 2019.
"We are very pleased to announce that we have achieved our stabilised production guidance of 50 MMscfe/d approximately three months ahead of our original target date,” said Mark Reid, SDX chief executive.
“The performance to date of the CPF and the four wells has exceeded our expectations and, with the commencement of our South Disouq drilling campaign in Q1 2020, we are looking forward to an exciting period of activity in this concession."
Gas produced from South Disouq is sold to the Egyptian national gas company, EGAS, at a fixed price of US$2.85 per thousand cubic feet. The Egyptian government has a 51% entitlement share of gross production.
