Field facts

The Ashrafi offshore field in the southwestern part of the Gulf of Suez covers an area of 124 kmĀ², with a reservoir depth ranging between 1,500 and 2,000 metres. It has 2 mmboe 2P reserves remaining.

The field went into production in 1992. In 1997, its southwest area added significant volumes. It currently has three platforms producing from 11 wells.

The original development used 12 naturally flowing wells. In 2000, production peaked at 25,800 barrels per day. In subsequent years, output declined as reservoir pressure fell. In the years since, brownfield best practices have been employed to support reservoir pressure and sustain production.

ENI operates the site with its joint-venture partners Agiba Petroleum Company (Agiba) and the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC).
