LONDONChariot Oil & Gas has issued the main findings of a new study for the Anchois gas field offshore Morocco.

The report found development is technically feasible, either via a single-phase or staged approach.

Options include a subsea-to-shore project applying industry-standard technical solutions and equipment.

In this case, subsea production wells would be connected to a manifold, from where a subsea flowline (and control umbilical) would take the field’s production to an onshore central processing facility for onward delivery through the Maghreb-Europe Gas pipeline system.

There is potential to re-enter the suspended Anchois-1 gas discovery well, originally drilled by Repsol, and complete it as a producer.

Morocco’s growing energy market and favorable gas prices should further sustain the project’s economics.

Chariot has initiated an environmental impact assessment ahead of planned appraisal drilling in 2020.
