New Gas Discovery in Oltenia Region

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/8/2019, Location: Europe

OMV Petrom, the largest oil and gas producer in Southeastern Europe has discovered new hydrocarbon resources in Oltenia region (Gorj county).

“Over the years, the Totea gas field has been one of the main contributors in our portfolio. As with any oil and gas field, Totea has started to decline after the end of the plateau production level in 2017. The discovery of additional resources in the proximity of Totea field is great news for the potential of the area and will compensate some of this decline”, said Peter Zeilinger, OMV Petrom Executive Board member responsible for Upstream.

The drilling of the well Totea 4461 was started in January 2018 and reached final depth in September of the same year. The well was successfully tested in April 2019 up to 500,000 cubic meter of gas per day. Tie in to the Totea facilities through a new built pipeline was achieved in less than a year and the experimental production to test the potential and extent of the new accumulation has been started.

Investments in the new well and facilities amount to approx. 50 million euro. This is in addition to the 200 million euro already spent since 2011 for the development of the gas infrastructure in the Totea area. Development works included drilling of five deep gas wells and construction of the 4540 Totea surface production facilities.

Natural gas from the Totea gas field is transported via a 25 km pipeline to the Hurezani gas hub for treatment and then delivered into the National Transportation System.

With the newly added well, the gas production from the Totea field, could provide heating for over 500,000 households.
