Eni and partners BP and Rosneft announce first gas from Egypt’s giant Zohr field. This milestone was reached on schedule, a mere 22 months after FID was taken. Phase 1 is expected to add 800mmcfd to Egypt’s surging gas supply next year. Zohr is the largest discovery in the Eastern Mediterranean and is vital to Egypt achieving energy independence. The pace at which Eni delivered first gas is impressive; just two and a half years from discovery, making Zohr the fastest deepwater gas development of such a scale ever.
