New gas discovery in Oltenia region
Besides that, OMV Petrom published a document regarding the new gas discovery in Oltenia region, which is in the proximity of producing Totea field.
The company notes that the drilling of the well Totea 4461 was started in January 2018 and reached final depth in September 2018. The well was successfully tested in April 2019 up to 500,000 cubic meter of gas per day. Tie in to the Totea facilities through a new built pipeline was achieved in less than a year and the experimental production to test the potential and extent of the new accumulation has been started. Investments in the new well and facilities amount to roughly EUR 50m, in addition to the EUR 200m already spent since 2011 for the development of the gas infrastructure in the Totea area.
Development works included drilling of five deep gas wells and construction of the 4540 Totea surface production facilities. With the newly added well, the gas production from the Totea field, could provide heating for over 500,000 households.
