Aden – Reuters: An official in the Safer Company for oil exploration and production operations in Yemen said that the government company intends to raise its production of gas and improved petroleum (C5) by the end of this month.
Engineer Abd al-Salam al-Atir, director of the production and operations sector at the company, located in the northeastern governorate of Ma’rib, said that the company plans to increase production by pumping 40 million cubic feet of natural gas, which contains quantities of domestic gas, starting at the end of January.
Al-Otair confirmed to Reuters that the company is working to increase that from its Al-Shura field, to send it to the company’s central processing unit, to raise domestic gas production to 23,000 barrels per day from 21,500 barrels per day currently.
He added that the company will work to transfer the same amount of dry gas from the Asaad Al-Kamel field to the Al-Shoura field to inject it with gas, keep it pressurized and protect it from depletion.
The Yemeni official said, “Safer Company seeks to meet the market’s need for domestic gas, as it owns four gas plants, each plant can process 400 million cubic feet of gas per day, from which domestic gas is extracted, as well as C5 mixed with exported crude or mixed with 95 petroleum and produces petroleum.” A high quality enhancer.”
In mid-November, the Safer Company resumed pumping gasoline operations with a production capacity of 25,000 barrels per day, of which 10,000 were to Ma’rib refineries and 15,000 were exported through the Al-Nashima port in Shabwa governorate.
Yemen’s proven natural gas reserves in Block 18, located in Marib and Al-Jawf, are estimated at 10.3 trillion cubic feet, of which 9.1 trillion were sold to South Korea and the United States, according to the Yemeni gas sale agreement, which took effect in 2009 for a period of 20 years.
Safer Company resumed its production and export of crude oil in mid-October 2019, after five years of suspension. Before the outbreak of the war between the Houthis and a Saudi-led coalition in early 2015, the company was producing about 40,000 barrels of oil per day from Block 18.
The oil and gas sector is considered the most important source of most of the government’s revenues in Yemen, and it is a small oil producer, and its production has now declined to 55 thousand barrels per day after it was between 150 and 200 thousand barrels per day before the war, while it was more than 450 thousand barrels per day in 2007.
