The DEKA Project envisages the development of gas discoveries by means of the drilling of five subsea wells, the installation of subsea production systems together with sealines and gas processing at the El Gamil Gas Plant onshore.

The project’s peak production is expected by 1Q 2015 with a total gross gas rate of about 6.5 million cubic metres per day.

The Denise South 6 is the first development well of the DEKA Project located in the Temsah Concession Area, in the offshore Nile Delta, Egypt. The well is located approximately 65 kilometres north of Port Said, in a 100 metres water depth.

IEOC holds 50 per cent working interest in the Temsah Concession and operates through its JV Petrobel (50 per cent IEOC and 50 per cent EGPC).

Eni has been present in Egypt since 1954 and is the largest international energy player in the country. In 2013, the company’s oil and natural gas equity production averaged approximately 228 thousands boed.
