The operator Candax Energy has announced that the installation of the offshore production platform and the tie in to the oil and gas export pipeline at the location of the EBB-4 well at the El Bibane field in Tunisia has been completed. Candax reports further that the pressure has been successfully tested and certified for production operational start up. The well EBB-4 will not commence production until completion of the three well drilling program and the installation of the gas recycling system. According to Candax, a considerable volume of water was lost into the EBB-4 well during the drilling of the horizontal well, which will need to be removed from the near-wellbore area by gas-lifting with the re-compressed gas.

Although continued bad weather has further delayed project completion during the month of January, the installation and tie in of the EBB-5 platform is progressing. Candax Energy reports that the jacket has been installed offshore and the topsides/deck is currently being mated and welded to the jacket. Upon completion, the gas injection line and risers will be installed and commissioned, and then the well will be tied into the onshore gas compression system. The West Titania rig is currently drilling the horizontal production section on the final well in the program, the EBB-3 well. Upon completion of drilling, the West Titania drilling rig will be released and the installation of the EBB-3 platform and pipeline hook-ups with the other wells will commence. According to Candax Energy, the full field development is now expected to be completed in March.

PA Resources owns a 25 percent working interest in the license.
