In the moment, Dana Gas focuses its exploration, development and production activities mainly in the onshore area of the Nile Delta.
Nile Delta operations
DGE’s operations in the Nile Delta commenced in 2007 when it purchased the assets of Centurion Corporation, which operated two onshore concessions. Over the years, DGE was awarded two more concessions and has very successfully progressed exploration activities which led to a substantial number of discoveries and a significant increase in company reserves. The company currently holds four onshore concessions: El Manzala, West El Manzala, West El Qantara and North El Sahiya, covering a total area of 796 square kilometres. Production currently comes from approx. 30 wells, connected via an extensive, 600 km pipeline network which brings all production to the El Wastani gas plant for further processing and separation of dry gas, condensate and LPG.
The current production level (Jan 2022) is +/- 27,000 boepd including 130 MMscfd dry gas, 2,900 BOPD Condensate and 200 tons of LPG.
El Wastani Gas plant
The El Wastani Gas Processing Plant is located in the Nile Delta near Damietta and is managed and operated by a joint venture between Dana Gas and EGAS with the name El Wastani Petroleum Company (WASCO)]. The plant was commissioned in December 2006, initially as an early production facility, but then expanded to accommodate the increasing production potential of the area to an actual capacity of 200 MMSCFD. The gas processing plant is equipped to separate wet gas into dry gas, liquid condensate and LPG. The processed products are sold and delivered to the local market.
