The Mellitah Oil & Gas Company, a joint venture between oil and gas supermajor, Eni, and Libya’s state-owned National Oil Corporation, has resumed production at four gas wells in the Bahr Al-Salam gas and condensate field, offshore Libya, after being closed due to a technical problem.

Situated within Block NC41 in the Mediterranean Sea, approximately 110km from Libya’s capital city, Tripoli, the Bahr Al-Salam field is the north African country’s largest offshore production site, containing 260 billion cubic meters of gas. Total productivity of the well is approximately 80 million cubic feet of gas per day, with an estimated 3,000 barrels per day of condensate.

The offshore gas and condensate field is owned and operated by the Mellitah Oil & Gas Company, which serves as Libya’s biggest oil company, managing several onshore and offshore fields throughout the country, as well as a network of onshore pipelines, producing 600,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
