GAS DEVELOPMENT INTERESTS – DELVINA GAS FIELD
GAS DEVELOPMENT INTERESTS DELVINA GAS FIELD
In October 2020, the Energy Development Group has joined forces with an upstream service company to invest in the Delvina gas condensate field. The group provides technical expertise, drilling services and capital to develop the field and to market its products.
DELVINA GAS FIELD:
The onshore ‘Delvina Field’ lies in southern Albania, near Delvina town and close to Greek border (Figure 1). The field is discovered by DPNG (former AlbPetrol) in mid-80’s and has produced intermittently up to 2012, when the field became idle, due to lack of investments and lack of marketing options for the natural gas. Since then, despite the involvement from several private enterprises to follow up with development, there was no particular commercial success.
Delvina gas condensate is the first ever carbonate sub-thrust play type found in the Ionian Zone of Albania (Figure 2, 3). Only four wells have reached the carbonate reservoir, but only two of them have been producing small amounts of gas-condensate.
EDG’s technical evaluation outlines a path to develop this field combining a gradual data acquisition and the deployment of drilling and completion technology. To untap the remaining potential, EDG is working over existing wellbores to properly access and test the formation, before designing high volume horizontal wells targeting the most prolific intervals of the Upper Cretaceous formation which has previously produced indicating a significant potential.
