RWE Dea: Development drilling campaign starts at Algerian Reggane Nord gas project
The Reggane Nord consortium that includes RWE Dea has commenced development drilling at the gas project in the Algerian Sahara. 26 development wells are planned for the first drilling campaign. The start of gas production is scheduled for summer 2017.

The first development well KL-39 was spudded end of January, with KCA Deutag Rig T-211. It’s the first of a total of 26 development wells, which are planned to be completed during the first drilling campaign. Further production wells are foreseen in the course of the development of this project.

“We are delighted to reach this next stage in the project, after detailed preparation work with all partners over recent months,” said Christoph Schlichter, Senior Vice President Production North Africa of RWE Dea AG. “We are looking forward to a successful drilling campaign. The expected reserves of the project will make a significant contribution to the growth of Dea’s gas production in the years to come. That’s why we are pleased that the project is in time for start of production in summer 2017”, Schlichter remarked.

Among the 26 development wells 21 wells are expected to be drilled, completed and put on production until the first gas date. Another 5 wells are planned to be drilled and added to production afterwards. The production phase of the project is expected to span more than 25 years.

The Reggane Nord project comprises the gas fields of Reggane, Azrafil Sud-Est, Kahlouche, Kahlouche Sud, Tiouliline and Sali. The Groupement Reggane-Nord (GRN) partners are RWE Dea AG with its 19.5%-share, the Algerian enterprise Sonatrach (40%), Repsol from Spain (29.25%), and Edison from Italy (11.25%). In 2002, Dea started exploration activites in the concession area Reggane Nord together with partners Repsol (operator) and Edison with corresponding gas discoveries, which are now subject to development under the operation of GRN.

Algeria is the leading natural gas producer in Africa and an important natural gas supplier to Europe.
