QP commences drilling for North Field LNG expansion
Qatar Petroleum has announced the start of the development drilling campaign for the North Field East (NFE) project (previously known as the North Field expansion project).
The first of 80 NFE development wells was spudded on 29 March by the jack-up rig GulfDrill Lovanda, which is managed and operated by GulfDrill, a joint venture between Gulf Drilling International and Seadrill Ltd.
This phase of the North Field expansion project will increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 77 million tpy to 110 million tpy. The second phase of the North Field LNG expansion project, known as the North Field South (NFS) project, will further increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity from 110 million tpy to 126 million tpy.
Commenting on this occasion, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said, “The start of the development drilling campaign for NFE represents an important milestone to deliver on our strategy to grow our LNG production capacity. The continued achievement of milestones, dedication of significant resources and making of substantial investments is proof that the NFE remains on top of our priorities and demonstrates our commitment to executing this mega-project.”
