AGOCO restores 2,900 bpd output at abandoned well in Messla

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – Libya’s Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO), a subsidiary of the National Oil Corporation (NOC), said it had resumed production of 2,900 barrels per day at a long-abandoned well in the Messla field in the east of the country.

After a 40-year halt, output was restored at the H54-65 well using drilling techniques developed by U.S. oilfield services firm Schlumberger, an AGOCO official told Reuters on Thursday.

Six months ago, the company restored output of 3,000 bpd at a HH86-65 well in the same 70,000 bpd Messla field.
