The WDDM concession forms part of the Burullus Gas Field in the Mediterranean Sea.
The concession is expected to enhance gas production to meet domestic demand and supply the Egyptian Liquefied Natural Gas plant.
Located approximately 90km offshore Egypt, the WDDM concession is a critical source of natural gas, with numerous fields and reservoirs already discovered.
In a press statement, Longitude said: “Burullus Gas Company is continuing the expansion of the WDDM facilities through the current phase of the development known as WDDM Phase-X.
“Phase-X includes three subsea wells being brought online to supplement the existing 70 wells currently in production, at water depth ranging from 450m to 660m.”
