The Qantara contract area is located on the eastern side of the Nile Delta approximately 25 kilometres southwest of Port Said. The area was first explored in the 1970s and field brought onstream in 2001. The field produced small volumes of gas and condensate until 2006 when it was shut in. Melrose re started production in October 2008. The field is expected to continue to produce very small volumes of gas and condensate from one well until depletion which we expect in 2018.
