Waha Oil Company (WOC), a National Oil Corporation subsidiary, has completed preparations on another horizontal well in the Faregh oil field ahead of the planned start of second-phase experimental gas production by the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Initial tests indicate that the B B-14-59 is expected to produce up to 24 million cubic feet or gas, and 1500 barrels or condensate per day (bcpd), using a 64/64-inch wellhead choke. The National Oil Corporation (NOC) confirmed that this addition is 33 million cubic feet of gas, and 1,400 bpcd production capacity of well B B-10-59, completed in November 2018.

NOC chairman, Eng. Mustafa Sanalla thanked staff dedicated to this project and the importance of refocusing the Faregh field to provide gas for local community use, and the fostering of further regional economic development.
