Libya Gas Review Current Gas Reserves Status Libya, 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.
Estimated Gas Reserves Libya is the 4 th largest gas potential country in Africa
Energy Conference 2014, St Julians – Malta, 10 – 11 July 2014 National Oil Corporation, Libya Libyan discovered proven gas reserves (*) 18.4 TCF, 34% 36.2 TCF, 66% (*) Above reserves do not include latest discovered offshore and onshore gas reserves estimated between 5-10 TCF. Total gas reserves : 54.6 TCF Libyan Gas Review
Large Area (˜50%) of the country remains unexplored. Sirte Basin Ghadames Basin Murzuq Basin Kufra Basin Cyrenaica Platform Pelagian Basin Offshore Sirte Basin
Energy Conference 2014, St Julians – Malta, 10 – 11 July 2014 National Oil Corporation, Libya 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. Libyan Gas Review
Discovered (not-developed) Western Onshore Gas Fields (*). So far only Wafa Gas Field has been developed
Offshore Gas Fields North West offshore fields, in Concessions, 35, 41 & 137. Estimated reserves ˜15 TCF New offshore discovery (2009), Arus El Bahr, by HESS in Gulf of Sirte, Area 54. Estimated reserves 5.0 TCF
North-West Offshore Gas Fields Gas Reserves: 14.9TCF Bahr Esselam is the only developed gas field: Current production Current production capacity is 950 MMSCF/D. capacity is 950 MMSCF/D. Feasibility studies on other offshore gas field developments is in other offshore gas field developments is in progress. Expected progress. Expected additional gas rate is 600 MMSCF/D in MMSCF/D in 2018.
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)
Current Developed Free Gas reservoirs Current gas production is realized from Free (Non Associated) Gas Reservoirs, and Associated gas from oil reservoirs Developed Free Gas Reservoirs: Millitah, Wafa Field, 620 MMCF/D Millitah, Bahr Essalam Field 950 MMCF/D
First Free Gas Producer was in 1978 by Sirte Oil Company 1978, Hatiba, 200 MMCF/D 1989, Assumood, 80 MMCF/D 1990, Sahl, 70 MMCF/D 2005 Attahadi, 350 MMCF/D
Energy Conference 2014, St Julians – Malta, 10 – 11 July 2014 National Oil Corporation, Libya Free Gas (Non Associated Gas Producers) - Mellitah & Sirte Oil are the major free gas producers Gas Prod Rate, MMCSF/D Sirte Oil: 456 MMCF/D Mellitah: 1193 MMCF/D Libyan Gas Review
Gas Utilization & Sales
Current gas pipelines and Export line to Europe
Energy Conference 2014, St Julians – Malta, 10 – 11 July 2014 National Oil Corporation, Libya 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. Libyan Gas Review

Shale Oil & Shale Gas In Place (Risked) Billion Barrels TCF After EIA/ARI JUNE 2013 Total = 614 BBO Total = 943 TCF
Gas utilization Until 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 consumers Now Libya wants to extend use of natural gas for; country’s power generation manufacturing, supply gas for the international market. Feasibilities of new gas field development and gas utilization projects are underway
New Gas Field Development Projects Gas & Condensate Fields In NC-5, 7 & 8 Gas & Condensate Fields In NC-5, 7 & 8 (Under study: potential up to 400 MMSCFD) Fariegh Field Fariegh Field Potential up to 180 MMSCFD, (under commissioning). NC-98 & NORTH GIALO 6J 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) Offshore Fields (NC-41) (Discovered structures have potential to produce 600 MMSCFD)
Projects to Enhance Gas Utilization Upgrade gas shipping capacity of coastal line Al Jurf gas utilization / re-injection Hatieba gas plant upgrade Jebel gas lift upgrade Nasser gas lift upgrade Bouri gas utilization (off shore) Sarir Messla gas utilization Nafoora gas utilization Amal & Ghani gas utilization

Conclusions Libya 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 TCF The 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.
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.
