Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo (PGNiG) assumes that it will begin drilling in the field in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the middle of next year, said Robert Perkowski, vice president.
“As part of our concession in the United Arab Emirates, we have moved to the second stage of works. Most likely, in the middle of next year, we will have preliminary drilling and exploration works there. It is worth remembering that each country in which we operate has different local regulations. We will drill and wait for the results. The specificity of upstream is based on the assumption that this business is roulette, but we currently have techniques to recognize the deposit, among others through the analysis of seismic images. We in the UAE expect not only natural gas, but probably also condensate, ”said Perkowski on the sidelines of the Energy Congress in Wrocław.
In May this year. PGNiG announced that it is starting the second stage of exploration work in the Emirate of Ras al-Khaimah. At that time, the company was at the stage of design and location arrangements for the first exploration well, which will answer the question about the production potential of the license.
