It consists of five production wells (one submarine well at the Doina field and four production wells at the Ana field), a production platform monitored and operated from the shore, located on the Ana field and a 126 km submarine pipeline that provides gas transport to the new gas treatment plant in Corbu commune, Constanţa county.
