The field development plan underpinning this production concession includes:
- the drilling, pre first gas, of up to 5 new horizontal development wells, in addition to recompletion of the existing TE-6 and TE-7 wells.
- the construction of a gas treatment plant and compression station ("CPF") and a 120 km 20 inch Tendrara Gas Export Pipeline ("TGEP") connecting the CPF and the delivery point to the Gazoduc Maghreb Europe pipeline. As already announced, front end engineering and design ("FEED") is underway for both the CPF and TGEP.
- the achievement of first gas in approximately two years at an expected mid case production rate of around 60 million standard cubic feet per day over a minimum period of 10 years during which it is currently estimated, subject to optimisation of drilling plans, that an additional 10 to 13 wells will be drilled to maintain this production rate.
On 7 June, 2018, Sound announced that it had signed heads of terms with a consortium comprising Enagas, Elecnor and Fomento for the FEED and conditional construction and financing of all the infrastructure required, including the TGEP and CPF under a 'build-own-operate-transfer' structure.
