Dana Gas’ operations in the Nile Delta currently produce gas and associated liquids from 10 fields. In spite of recent operational challenges, Dana Gas Egypt produced gas, LPG, condensate and crude oil at an average rate of just over 32,200 boepd in 2012. Pending resolution of the receivables position production is slated to increase in 2013 as compression facilities are added, new fields are brought on stream and work commences on increasing the throughput of the El Wastani plant to above 180 MMscfd.
