August 2019 – Parties to expedite domestic gas supply and in-country renewable energy projects
National Oil Corporation (NOC) and Italian oil major Eni announce the completion of Phase 2 of the Bahr Essalam offshore gas project, a joint venture between the two companies operated by NOC subsidiary Mellitah Oil & Gas Company (MOG). Production from the field’s ninth well began earlier this month, while work on the last well is currently in progress.
Phase 2 of the project increases field production from 995 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMSCFD) to 1,100 million MMSCFD and completes the phased development of Libya’s largest offshore producing gas field.
The Head of the American Libyan Work Committee expressed the desire of the firms to resume work in Libya and to expand their contracts, hailing the Libyan embassy and Audit Bureau’s role in setting up the meeting for discussions.
Meanwhile, Shakshak met with the US Development Agency and reviewed cooperation with Libya in training the bureau’s cadres among other things.
The meetings came on the sidelines of the Audit Bureau’s participation at a New York conference for sustainable development goals’ control on July 22-23.
