Rosetta Gas Production Starts At 200Mn CFD

Natural gas production from the Nile Delta offshore Rosetta concession, which started earlier this month (MEES, 12 February), is averaging 200mn cu ft/day. Plans call for increasing output to 225mn cfd by the middle of the year and 275mn cfd by mid-2002, sustainable for a 20-year period.
