The first gases extracted from the shallow offshore perimeters Ana and Doina entered the national transport system on Wednesday, Black Sea Oil & Gas announces. The company estimates that the two fields will produce half a billion cubic meters of gas this year.
“Black Sea Oil & Gas (” BSOG “) together with its concession partners, Petro Ventures Resources SRL (” Petro Ventures “) and Gas Plus Dacia SRL (” Gas Plus “), announce the start of production this afternoon. gases from the Midia Natural Gas Development Project (“MGD Project”) and the introduction of the first gases in the National Transport System (“SNT”) ”, the company announced in a statement quoted by e-nergia.ro. “Production of 0.5 billion cubic meters of gas is estimated this year. The production on the plateau will be about 1 billion cubic meters of gas / year for the next three years of the ten years of life estimated for the Ana and Doina fields “, the communiqué also shows.
“The MGD project is the first new natural gas development project in the Romanian continental shelf of the Black Sea in the last 30 years and the only project under development today. 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 (“STG”) in Corbu commune, Constanţa county. The treated gases are delivered in the NTS to the gas measuring station located inside the STG “, say those from BSOG.
Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca welcomes the start of gas exploitation in the Midia Natural Gas Development Project. The annual production of natural gas from the XV Midia perimeter will ensure 10% of the national consumption needs and brings Romania closer to the biggest desideratum regarding energy security, namely, energy independence.
“For the first time, the exploitation of natural gas in the Black Sea will strengthen Romania’s capacity to ensure the need for natural gas from domestic consumption and thus achieve the goal of being energy independent. Providing the necessary natural gas from our own resources by 90 percent makes us a much more competitive market, especially during these overlapping crises. The Romanian Government will always be a partner of all investors who add value to our country and contribute to the well-being of our citizens. The Offshore Law allows the continuation of natural gas exploitation projects in the Black Sea, with prospects of transforming Romania into a gas exporter in the coming years, ”said Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca.
The Midia Natural Gas Development Project (MGD Project) includes gas fields discovered in 2007 and 1995 and 1995, located approximately 120 km from the coast of Romania, in the shallow water area of the XV Midia perimeter where the water depth is 70 meters. In the period 2018-2022, the necessary investments for the exploitation of the gas from the Midia perimeter have been completed, and their value is approximately 400 million dollars.
