On 14 March, Eni announced a discovery at its Nour prospect in Egypt's gas prolific Nile Delta. Nour-1 found 33 metres of gross pay in the Tineh formation of Oligocene age. Eni operates the Nour block (40%) and is partnered by BP (25%), Mubadala Petroleum (20%) and Egyptian state-owned Tharwa Petroleum (15%). Nour was one of our most keenly anticipated wells of 2019 to watch. BP and Mubadala's farm-in during drilling underpinned confidence in Eni's subsurface model. At 5,914 metres, Nour is one of the deepest wells ever drilled offshore Egypt.
