Libya reopens a well in the largest gas production platform after a two-year hiatus The National Oil Corporation in Libya announced on Saturday the reopening of a gas well run by the Mellitah Oil and Gas Company on its Sabratha platform in the Mediterranean. The total daily production of the well will reach 37 million cubic feet of gas and 1,000 barrels of condensate. The National Oil Corporation said in a statement that production has stopped since January 28, 2021 due to technical problems. Sabratha is one of the largest production platforms in Libya, and this well represents an important part of the production operations on the platform, which is located 110 km from the Libyan coast in the Bahr Essalam field. The production capacity of the Bahr al-Salam field is estimated at 986 million cubic feet of exportable gas and about 31,000 barrels per day of condensate, according to the website of the Sabratha offshore platform. Gas and condensate are produced from 15 wells near the platform, and 11 others under the sea, according to the same source. Libya is exempt from the decision of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to cut production, and Europe relies heavily on it to compensate for the global shortage of oil and gas as a result of the Russian-Ukrainian war that has been going on since February 24, 2022.
