BG Tunisia to develop Hasdrubal field

Oct 03, 2005 02:00 AM

BG Tunisia let a contract to Petrofac, Woking, UK, for front-end engineering and design for development of Hasdrubal oil and condensate field off Tunisia.
It plans to develop the field with a normally unattended installation and to produce hydrocarbons through a new multiphase export pipeline to onshore processing facilities that will be built next to the existing BG Tunisia Hannibal plant, Petrofac said.

Hasdrubal facilities will move sales gas to the Tunisian gas grid and condensate to a storage facility along the coast at La Skhira via a new pipeline. The field, a 1975 Elf discovery initially considered non-commercial, is in the Amilcar exploration permit off Sfax in the Gulf of Gabes, 25 km south of Miskar field, where BG has produced as much as 216 mm cfpd of gas and 5,554 bpd of condensate.
BG Tunisia operates the Amilcar permit in partnership with state-owned ETAP. It submitted a development plan for Hasdrubal field last April after drilling a series of appraisal wells.

The first, Hasdrubal-3 drilled in June 1997, flowed 21 mm cfpd of gas. Hasdrubal-4, drilled in June 1998, flowed 4.6 mm cfpd of gas and 1,800 bpd of oil on a single drillstem test.
Hasdrubal-SW1 in 2002 tested light oil from the Tertiary El Garia formation, confirming an extension of Hasdrubal field to the southwest.
