Shell Nigeria, is continuing drilling the gas wells at ANOH, a straddle play gas development involving Shell- operated Assa North field in Oil Mining Lease (OML) 21 and Seplat operated Ohaji South field in OML 53.
A total of four wells are being planned for the project in 2021.
Shell is drilling all the wells because it is operator of the upstream segment of the ANOH gas development.
The midstream part of the project (i.e., installation of gas processing facility), is being done by each company separately; Shell and Seplat are each to output 300Million standard cubic feet per day, making a total of 600MMsf/d.
Elsewhere in the Niger Delta basin, Seplat proposes to continue its drilling campaign on the Oben field in OML 4 with two more gas wells, which are expected to produce 60 MMscf/d and 2,400BOPD combined.
Seplat has said it looks forward to commissioning its own segment of the ANOH Midstream project by 2H 2022.

It’s great to see the two companies Shell and SEPLAT firing in all cylinders to deliver on their component of the project. Hope the ball is not dropped at any stage. This will be contributing an awesome gas volume into the domestic market.
