SHARJAH, UAE -- Dana Gas is aiming for first gas next year from its $122 million Zora field development in the Sharjah Offshore Concession.

The field, which straddles both Sharjah and Ajman waters, is being developed via two to three horizontal producer wells tied back to a small, unmanned production platform.

Dana Gas foresees a start-up production rate of 50-60 MMcf/d. The gas will be exported ashore through a 30-km (18.6-mi) pipeline to an onshore processing plant, located in Sharjah’s Hamriyah Free Zone.

The company is also conducting studies for an exploration program in the concession. These have identified several prospective structures at the same level as the Zora field.
