Seven re­main­ing wells are ex­pected to be on­line at Libya’s Bahr Es­salam off­shore gas field by the end of the year, the Libyan Na­tional Oil Cor­po­ra­tion (NOC) said in a state­ment on Sun­day.

The state­ment came af­ter a meet­ing be­tween NOC Chair­man Mustafa Sanalla and Eni CEO Clau­dio Descalzi. The field is oper­ated by Mel­li­tah Oil and Gas, a joint ven­ture be­tween the NOC and Eni.

The first wells in phase two of the devel­op­ment of Bahr Es­salam came on­line in July.

At a meet­ing in the Libyan cap­i­tal, Tripoli, Sanalla and Descalzi dis­cussed plans for seven re­main­ing wells, which the state­ment said were “ex­pected to com­plete by the end of 2018”.

“The par­ties dis­cussed op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­crease pro­duc­tion, in­vest­ment and ex­plo­ration, and the im­por­tance of sus­tain­abil­ity in all ac­tiv­i­ties,” the state­ment added.

“The com­pres­sion ca­pac­ity up­grade project at the Wafa plant was also re­viewed, with the first gas ex­pected to come on stream in the next few days; a suc­cess­ful joint project in chal­leng­ing con­di­tions in Libya’s re­mote in­te­rior.”
