NEA - NI Pop Up.png

The NEA and NI concessions are both 100% owned by Energean and whilst operated through separate 50/50 JV companies they both fall under the overall management of Abu Qir Petroleum.

NEA contains two discovered and appraised gas fields (Yazzi and Python). NI – which is split into northern 21 and southern areas – contains four discovered gas fields, one of which is readied for development. Both areas contain additional mapped but undrilled prospects. 

These fields were developed in 2023 as satellite fields to the Abu Qir gas-condensate offshore and onshore infrastructure. Multiple wells were completed and tied back to the North Abu Qir III platform. Production commenced December 2023.
