More about the Zohr field: Dresser Rand cooperates with deposits
Zohr is the largest gas field on the shelf of the Mediterranean Sea. The deposit is located off the coast of Egypt. It was discovered by the Italian company Eni. As indicated in the company’s press release, the field potentially contains up to 30 trillion cubic feet (850 billion cubic meters) of gas on an area of about 100 square kilometers. That amount of energy approximately corresponds to 5.5 billion barrels of oil. Eni officially announced this on Sunday August 30, 2015. At the end of January 2016, the company corrected the forecast to 453 billion.
The gas content is associated with the Miocene sediments.
