Centurion Energy has reported that Egypt’s Gelgel oil field commenced production on October 20, 2003, from the company's South Manzala Development Lease located in the Nile Delta region.
The Gelgel field commenced production under natural flow and has brought total production from the South Manzala area to 33 million cubic feet (mmcf) per day, and has raised company-wide production to approximately 9,900 barrel of oil per day (bpd).
Centurion is completing the compression facilities, which will increase total production from the South Manzala area and stabilize production to the contracted production rate of 35 mmcf per day.
