3 Current Gas Reserves Status Libya Gas ReviewCurrent Gas Reserves StatusLibya, with its discovered estimated natural gas reserves of more than 55 TCF, is one of the large gas potential countries.So far, country’s actual gas reserves have been largely unexploited and unexplored.it is believed that the remaining prospecting gas resources exceed 100 TCF.
4 Estimated Gas Reserves Libya is the 4th largest gas potential country in Africa
5 Libyan Gas Review Libyan discovered proven gas reserves (*) Total gas reserves : 54.6 TCF18.4 TCF, 34%36.2 TCF, 66%(*) Above reserves do not include latest discovered offshore and onshore gas reserves estimated between 5-10 TCF.NOC TM # 17,May,20025
6 Large Area (˜50%) of the country remains unexplored. Sirte BasinGhadames BasinMurzuq BasinKufra BasinCyrenaica PlatformPelagian BasinOffshore Sirte Basin
7 Libyan Gas Review Prolific basins and gas locations The most prolific discovered gas reserves are located in Sirt, Ghadames, Murzuq Basins, North Western offshore blocks and North Sirt basin offshore.NOC TM # 17,May,20027
8 Discovered (not-developed) Western Onshore Gas Fields (. ) Discovered (not-developed) Western Onshore Gas Fields (*). So far only Wafa Gas Field has been developed
9 Offshore Gas FieldsNorth West offshore fields, in Concessions , 35, 41 & 137. Estimated reserves ˜15 TCFNew offshore discovery (2009), Arus El Bahr, by HESS in Gulf of Sirte, Area 54. Estimated reserves 5.0 TCF
10 North-West Offshore Gas Fields Gas Reserves: 14.9TCF Bahr Esselam is the onlydeveloped gas field:Current productioncapacity is 950 MMSCF/D.Feasibility studies onother offshore gas field developments is inprogress. Expectedadditional gas rate is600 MMSCF/D in 2018.
11 National Energy Strategy Until recently, crude oil was the major target of hydrocarbon resource for exploration and exploitation;Due to increasing demand for gas by domestic and international consumers, NOC has adapted a National Energy Strategy to;Explore new resources,Develop discovered gas fields,Utilize associated gas from oil fields (zero gas flaring)Expand and upgrade gas production infrastructure and capacity of the country and expand domestic gas utilization (i.e. power, distillation, industries, petrochemicals and city gas)
12 Current Developed Free Gas reservoirs Current gas production is realized fromFree (Non Associated) Gas Reservoirs, andAssociated gas from oil reservoirsMillitah , Bahr Essalam Field950 MMCF/DDeveloped Free Gas Reservoirs:Millitah,Wafa Field, 620 MMCF/D

16 Current gas pipelines and Export line to Europe
17 Libyan Gas Review West Libyan Gas Pipeline Project Jointly with ENI Company;West Libyan Gas Pipeline Project was completed in 2004 and first gas export thru the 32” pipe line, along the Mediterranean Sea to Europe, was commenced in the same year.The gas export capacity of this pipeline has been supplied from onshore Wafa Field and offshore Bahr Esselam Fields at around 1050 million SCF/D. Development of the other discovered offshore blocks in the Concession 41 is under planning stage to further back up this pipeline.NOC TM # 17,May,200217

22 Gas utilizationUntil 2004, Sirte Oil Company was only gas producer from Sirte Basin gas fields, Attahadi, Hatiba, Sahl and Assumud. Production was utilized for petro- chemical products and LNG Plant in Marsa El Brega refinery and for local industry consumersNow Libya wants to extend use of natural gas for;country’s power generationmanufacturing,supply gas for the international market.Feasibilities of new gas field development and gas utilization projects are underway
23 New Gas Field Development Projects Gas & Condensate Fields In NC-5, 7 & 8(Under study: potential up to 400 MMSCFD)Fariegh FieldPotential up to 180 MMSCFD, (under commissioning).NC-98 & NORTH GIALO 6J(gas will be recycled to reservoir to maximize recovery; condensate production up 100,000 bbls/day from each field)Offshore Fields (NC-41)(Discovered structures have potential to produce 600 MMSCFD)
24 Projects to Enhance Gas Utilization Upgrade gas shipping capacity of coastal lineAl Jurf gas utilization / re-injectionHatieba gas plant upgradeJebel gas lift upgradeNasser gas lift upgradeBouri gas utilization (off shore)Sarir Messla gas utilizationNafoora gas utilizationAmal & Ghani gas utilization

31 ConclusionsLibya is one of the large gas potential countries with its discovered gas reserves estimated at 55 TCF with an estimated prospecting remaining resources of about 100 TCFThe large offshore gas discovery by HESS in 2009 in block 54 offshore Sirte Basin has opened a new exploration potential in this area.Construction of West Libyan Gas Pipe in 2004 from Millitah to Italy has opened an outlet for Libyan gas to the European Markets. Daily gas export rate to Italy is around million SCF/day.As per foreseen substantial gas demand from local and international markets, NOC has set steps towards utilization of the entire produced associated gas.As a part of development the country’s gas infrastructures, the coastal pipeline system, feeding the various industries in the country, has been extended to the west to meet the local demands and integrate with the international export outlets.
32 Additionally, NOC plans to build a complete gas pipeline network along the country’s gas resources to utilize all associated (Zero flaring) and non associated gas.Major gas development and gas utilization projects are underway in Sirte and Ghademes Basins.EU must play an important role for setback the stability of Libya.Libya one of the best Energy source for EU because Libya considered a very close and save source of energy.The Libyan Conventional and unconventional reserves is able to support the EU energy requirements for long period of time.The new Libya is open for the new investment ides to exploiting the deferent resource of energy ( oil & gas, Wind, Sun solar….. ).Libya has the youth have the ability to learn, work and participate in the development of the country.
