Company Profile

 Mabruk Oil Operations is one of the oil companies operating on behalf  of NOC  (National Oil Corporation ) & Total E&P.

Mabruk Oil Operations activities are based on the model of an operating company with core business activities focused in oil / gas fields’ development and production; this is widely practiced in Libya.

 Mabruk Oil Operations is a non profit company and does not have an aptitude for making any. It has a task in providing a service for the development, operation and production of commercially declared and explored assets on behalf of all partners (NOC, TOTAL, WINTERSHALL and HYDRONORSK).

Mabruk Oil Operations employees around 379 employees in 2008 of which 59 are expatriates, 320 are locals. They are distributed among its 3 main operational sites (see below) and its main offices located at Dhat El Imad Complex in Tripoli.

Mabruk Oil Operations operates 2 main oil fields (onshore & offshore) and posses the following sites:
• Mabruk Field: is an onshore field located about 170 kilometers to the south of Sirt town (Middle Eastern Libya – see location map). It was discovered in 1959 by LIAMCO (Libyan American Company), but was never developed due to the adverse characteristics of its carbonated reservoirs.
The development of the Mabruk oil field started in 1994 and has required the setup of innovative technologies to bring about a successful economic production from a tight and complex oil field (horizontal and multilateral drain drilling technology).
Average field production in 2006 is around 17,000 barrels of oil per day. In the coming years, the development project of Mabruk Phase 4 will allow this production to double in quantity, considering East/Central Mabruk, Dahra and Garian reservoirs development.
The development of this onshore field is ruled and governed by a DPSA agreement signed & ratified on 20/03/1993 between NOC, TOTAL and SAGA Petroleum.
• AL Jurf Field: is an offshore field situated close to the Tunisian border, 100 km off the coast and 150 km from Tripoli (see location map). The phase one development of the Al Jurf oil field is in final stages with the last wells being drilled.
From a fixed drilling & production platform (BD1) set at 87 meters of water depth linked to a Floating, Production, Storage & Offloading unit (FPSO) set in 83 meters of water depth via 10” sea- line of about 3 kilometers distance. First oil production was achieved on September 05th, 2003.
Production has reached the maximum capacity of 40,000 BOPD in less than a year from production start.
Pre-development studies for phase 2 development are currently ongoing with an objective to stop gas flaring, re-inject associated produced gas into the reservoir’s gas cap and increase production facilities capacity to 50, 000 BOPD.

The development of this offshore field is ruled and governed by an amended EPSA74 agreement signed & ratified on 12/04/1996 between NOC, ELF AQUITAINE (now TOTAL) and WINTERSHALL.
• Zarzis Marine Base: is an onshore marine logistical support base located across the border (in Tunisia). It is about 100 kilometers away from Al Jurf field. The base contains most of Mabruk Oil Operation’s storage space, facilities, material & equipment.
The base operates to support the drilling, construction and production operations in AL Jurf field, also to support other exploration & drilling activities in the same concession which are carried out by TEP Libye.
The base also coordinate and provide most of the drilling and operations equipment handling, providing and supplying boats services, loading of bulk materials and chemicals and offloading back cargos, including waste management.

Future plans call for the demobilization of such base support activities from Zarzis in Tunisia to Mellitah base in Libya incoordination and in joint venture with ENI Gas. B.V.  (2008/2009).

As per the 26 of September former company name (CPTL) has changed by NOC and TOTAL decision to Mabruk oil operations  all the operations and  actions remains the same.

Mabruk overview of C17:

General context
Concession C17 is located onshore in the western part of the Sirte basin in Libya, 130 km southern of Sirte and around 30 km west of Waha Oil Company’s Bahi production facilities.
On December 19th 1992, a Development and Production Sharing Agreement (DPSA) was executed between NOC as First party and Mabruk Oil Operations as Second Party. The DPSA was ratified by the General People’s Committee of the GSPLAJ on March 20th 1993.
The DPSA was amended on November 7th 1998 and was ratified by the General People Committee in 2000. The contract will expire in March 2028.
The second Party is :
• TEP Libye: 75%
• SAGA Petroleum Mabruk: 25%

 Background
Since the date of ratification of the DPSA, Mabruk Oil Operations mainly proceeded with:
• The West Mabruk Development:
It started by a pilot phase in 1993, followed by its extension and consolidation. This phase resulted in a better understanding of the reservoir, which led to the elaboration of a development plan issued in December 1996 (“ West Mabruk evaluation and development plan).
The West Mabruk development plan was based on a peripheral water injection scheme with horizontal producers (77 wells: 42 producers, 28 injectors and 7 water producers) and a process treatment capacity of 25,000 blpd able to both accommodate 20,000 bopd or 80% water cut.
• A long term testing of A1 ( Garian producer) and A4 (Dahra producer) through existing Mabruk facilities
• Deepening of well A68 in Garian North
• Drilling and test of another Garian well: A-97
• 2D & 3D seismic acquisition in 2000 (2D in Garian N and 3D in East Mabruk)

 

Al Jurf overview of C137:

License
 C 137 Block is located in the western part of Libyan offshore zone, extending up to about 100 km from the coast, along the Tunisian border. The license originates from a first contract awarded to AQUITAINE LIBYE in 1968. After various relinquishments, it is now divided into 2 zones, North and South, totaling 3184 km2  . It is ruled under the amended EPSA 74, ratified by Libyan authorities on 12th April 1997 and valid until 11th April 2017 (plus 5 years in case of production extension).

Participating Interest

NATIONAL OIL CORPORATION 50.0 %
TOTAL 37.5 %
WINTERSHALL 12.5 %

Operator
 For the exploration and appraisal phase, the operatorship is insured by TEP_Libye.
For the development phase the operatorship will be insured through an Operator’s Committee by Mabruk Oil Operations, the Operating Company for the TOTAL assets in Libya.
Discovery and appraisal
- From 1968 to date 17 wells have been drilled on block 137 N & S out of which 7 did encounter hydrocarbons ;
- The “B” discovery well (B1a-137) has been drilled in 1975 and was oil and gas bearing in lower Eocene.
- A first appraisal well (B2-137) has been drilled in 1983 but was water bearing.
- Following a 3D seismic acquisition carried out in 1997/1998, a second appraisal well (B3-137) has been drilled late 1998, and was able to secure the water oil contact and to test the oil in the main reservoir.
