Installation of steam facilities and the drilling of up to five
additional wells - Lagia Oil Field
SacOil Holdings Limited, through its subsidiary Mena International
Petroleum Company Limited ("Mena"), is pleased to announce the
commencement of phase 2 of the field development operations at its 100%
owned Lagia oil field in Sinai, onshore Egypt.
This second phase includes the installation of steam facilities for a
thermal recovery process on the existing production wells and the
drilling of a minimum of 5 additional thermal wells with the intent of
further enhancing existing production and the recovery of oil from the
SacOil procured a steam generator earlier this year and is proud to
confirm that the generator arrived on site on 4 September 2015.
Commissioning and operational testing is currently under way and the
Company is to commence full-scale steaming by the end of September 2015.
Initial steaming will focus on the existing production wells, which are
currently producing oil from cold flow only. It is anticipated that each
well will be steamed and allowed to soak for a number of days before
starting production. The commencement of phase 2 also coincides with the
drilling of a minimum of 5 additional wells. The drilling of Lagia 11 to
15 will start in mid-October 2015. Aligning the steaming process with
the additional drilling programme presents an ideal scenario to optimise
the use of on-site resources and test the potential upside of the field,
which is in line with the Company?s strategy to fast-track the
development of the Lagia oil field to production of above 1 000 bbls/d.
More details on the results of the second phase of development, as well
as progress on the current operations, will be announced in due course.
