This paper presents the depletion performance during a time span of more than 10 years for the BAHARIYA Reservoir - the major producing horizon of the giant Egyptian gas field: ABU GHARADIG (AG). The paper emphasizes the results of a recent comprehensive geological/engineering study where a detailed volumetric and mass balance analyses were carried out to pinpoint the recoverable reserves under the existing operating conditions.

The results available todate demonstrate that the existing wells will adequately drain the proved gas reserves, and consequently inlet gas compression has to be installed in order to meet the contractual demand-rate and to increase the ultimate gas recovery as well. In addition, the paper offers a brief summary about the gas plant components, the piping system, and the operating methodology.
