August 15 2019

Zohr, the largest gas field in the Mediterranean, is a concession between Italian Eni S.p.A. (50%), Rosneft (30%), British BP (10%), and Mubadala Petroleum (10%)

Zohr gas field, the largest in the Mediterranean, produced 11.3bn cubic metres of gas in H1 2019, 3.6 times more than it did in the same period last year, according to a statement by Rosneft. Production is being undertaken by a consortium led by Eni, which holds a 50% stake, as well as Rosneft (30%), BP (10%) and Mubadala Petroleum (10%).

By the end of 2019, gas output is expected to hit 76mn cubic metres of gas per day; it currently produced 68mn cubic metres of gas per day. Rosneft said that development of the field is “ahead of schedule,” with onshore gas treatment capacity increasing.

Additionally, 11 production wells, three offshore pipelines, an offshore management platform, and all eight production trains of the gas treatment plant have been commissioned.
