Gas Utilization & SalesNew Gas Dev. ProjectsLibya Gas ReviewCurrent Gas Reserves Status

Libya, with its discovered estimated natural gas reserves of more than 55 TCF, is one of the large gas potential countries.So far, countrys actual gas reserves have been largely unexploited and unexplored.

it is believed that the remaining prospecting gas resources exceed 100 TCF.Estimated Gas Reserves

Libya is the 4th largest gas potential country in Africa

Offshore Gas Fields

North West offshore fields, in Concessions , 35, 41 & 137. Estimated reserves 15 TCFNew offshore discovery (2009), Arus El Bahr, by HESS in Gulf of Sirte, Area 54. Estimated reserves 5.0 TCF North-West Offshore Gas Fields Gas Reserves: 14.9TCF

Bahr Esselam is the only developed gas field: Current production capacity is 950 MMSCF/D.

Feasibility studies on other offshore gas field developments is in progress. Expected additional gas rate is 600 MMSCF/D in 2018. National Energy StrategyUntil recently, crude oil was the major target of hydrocarbon resource for exploration and exploitation;

Due to increasing demand for gas by domestic and international consumers, NOC has adapted a National Energy Strategy to;

Explore new resources,Develop discovered gas fields,Utilize associated gas from oil fields (zero gas flaring)Expand and upgrade gas production infrastructure and capacity of the country and expand domestic gas utilization (i.e. power, distillation, industries, petrochemicals and city gas)

Current Developed Free Gas reservoirsCurrent gas production is realized from Free (Non Associated) Gas Reservoirs, andAssociated gas from oil reservoirs

Developed Free Gas Reservoirs:

Current gas pipelines and Export line to Europe

West Libyan Gas Pipeline ProjectJointly with ENI Company;

West Libyan Gas Pipeline Project was completed in 2004 and first gas export thru the 32 pipe line, along the Mediterranean Sea to Europe, was commenced in the same year.

The gas export capacity of this pipeline has been supplied from onshore Wafa Field and offshore Bahr Esselam Fields at around 1050 million SCF/D. Development of the other discovered offshore blocks in the Concession 41 is under planning stage to further back up this pipeline.

Until 2004, Sirte Oil Company was only gas producer from Sirte Basin gas fields, Attahadi, Hatiba, Sahl and Assumud. Production was utilized for petro-chemical products and LNG Plant in Marsa El Brega refinery and for local industry consumers

Now Libya wants to extend use of natural gas for; countrys power generation manufacturing, supply gas for the international market.

Feasibilities of new gas field development and gas utilization projects are underway

New Gas Field Development Projects

Gas & Condensate Fields In NC-5, 7 & 8(Under study: potential up to 400 MMSCFD)

Fariegh FieldPotential up to 180 MMSCFD, (under commissioning).

NC-98 & NORTH GIALO 6J(gas will be recycled to reservoir to maximize recovery; condensate production up 100,000 bbls/day from each field)Offshore Fields (NC-41)(Discovered structures have potential to produce 600 MMSCFD)

30ConclusionsLibya is one of the large gas potential countries with its discovered gas reserves estimated at 55 TCF with an estimated prospecting remaining resources of about 100 TCF

The large offshore gas discovery by HESS in 2009 in block 54 offshore Sirte Basin has opened a new exploration potential in this area.

Construction of West Libyan Gas Pipe in 2004 from Millitah to Italy has opened an outlet for Libyan gas to the European Markets. Daily gas export rate to Italy is around 800-900 million SCF/day.

As per foreseen substantial gas demand from local and international markets, NOC has set steps towards utilization of the entire produced associated gas.

As a part of development the countrys gas infrastructures, the coastal pipeline system, feeding the various industries in the country, has been extended to the west to meet the local demands and integrate with the international export outlets.

31Additionally, NOC plans to build a complete gas pipeline network along the countrys gas resources to utilize all associated (Zero flaring) and non associated gas.

Major gas development and gas utilization projects are underway in Sirte and Ghademes Basins.

EU must play an important role for setback the stability of Libya.

Libya one of the best Energy source for EU because Libya considered a very close and save source of energy.

The Libyan Conventional and unconventional reserves is able to support the EU energy requirements for long period of time.

The new Libya is open for the new investment ides to exploiting the deferent resource of energy ( oil & gas, Wind, Sun solar.. ).

Libya has the youth have the ability to learn, work and participate in the development of the country.
