LONDON – Italy’s Minister of the Environment has approved the environmental impact assessment for Rockhopper’s planned Ombrina Mare field development in the Adriatic Sea.

The decree must now be countersigned by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and the Ministry of Economic Development for the Minister to award the field production concession.

Elsewhere in the Adriatic, Rockopper is a partner in the producing Eni-operatedGuendalina gas field.

Here a planned acid wash has lifted production in one of the wells from 18,000 cm/d to 75,000 cm/d.

Gross production from the field is currently 190,000 cm/d. Eni plans a side track to the GUE2 well this summer.
