中国石化新闻网讯 据Rigzone网站12月28日报导，埃尼集团宣布在埃及西部沙漠的Meleiha租借地发现新的石油。该发现是通过南Arcadia构造上的Arcadia 9号井来完成的，位于已投产的Arcadia主油田以南1英里处。据悉，该井在Alam El Bueib 3G地层白垩纪砂岩中发现了85英尺高的油柱。埃尼集团透露，Arcadia 9号的原油日产量可稳定在5500桶。
继该发现之后，集团又对Arcadia 10和Arcadia 11这两口开发井进行了背对背的钻探。第一组钻探在Alam El Bueib 3G地层中分别遇到了25英尺和80英尺高的油柱。埃尼强调，这三口井在已发现的油藏中具有相同的油水界面。据悉，Arcadia 11还在上层的Alam El Bueib 3D地层中发现了20英尺的油层。
去年9月，埃尼集团和英国石油公司宣布在埃及近海尼罗河三角洲常规水域Abu Madi西部开发租借的“Great Nooros地区”发现了新的天然气田。今年7月，该集团还宣布在埃及西部沙漠西南部的Meleiha租借地发现了一处新的油田并开始生产。

Eni Finds Oil in Egypt Desert
Eni has announced a new oil discovery in the Meleiha Concession in the Western Desert of Egypt.
Achieved through the Arcadia 9 well on the Arcadia South structure, the find is located a mile south of the main Arcadia field already in production. The well was said to have encountered an 85 foot oil column in the Cretaceous sandstones of the Alam El Bueib 3G formation. Arcadia 9 has registered a stabilized rate of 5,500 barrels of oil per day, Eni revealed.
Following the discovery, two development wells, Arcadia 10 and Arcadia 11, were drilled back to back. The first one encountered a 25 foot oil column and the second one an 80 foot oil column within the Alam El Bueib 3G formation. The three wells share the same oil-water contact in the discovered reservoir, Eni highlighted. Arcadia 11 was also said to have encountered 20 feet of oil pay in the overlying Alam El Bueib 3D formation.
“Eni’s successful implementation of its infrastructure-led exploration strategy in the Western Desert through AGIBA, a joint venture between Eni and Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC), allows a quick valorization of these new resources,” Eni said in a company statement.
Through its subsidiary Ieoc, Eni holds a 38 percent interest in the Meleiha concession. Lukoil holds a 12 percent stake and EGPC holds the remaining 50 percent interest. Eni has been present in Egypt since 1954 and is the country’s main producer. The company’s current equity hydrocarbon production is said to be around 320,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Back in September, Eni and BP announced a new gas discovery in the ‘Great Nooros Area’, which is located in the Abu Madi West Development Lease in the conventional waters of the Nile Delta, offshore Egypt. In July, Eni announced a new oil discovery and new production in the South West Meleiha Concession in the Western Desert of Egypt.
