Chariot Limited said it has completed front end engineering and design (FEED) of the key components of its flagship Anchois gas development offshore Morocco, after initiation in June 2022. 

In conjunction with the subsurface development studies, this FEED work confirms the individual components of the initial development. These include:

  • three initial subsea producer wells, including the Anchois-2 well drilled by Chariot in 2022, with multi zone completions to enable gas recovery across multiple stacked sands;
  • Subea infrastructure (subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines & subsea production systems) capable of delivering procuded hydrocarbons from the wells to the onshore facilities via s subsea flowline and controlling the wells via an umbilical, with future expansion capabilities to tie-back additional wells; 
  • Onshore central processing facility (CPF) to process the hydrocarbons and to deliver treated gas and condensate to market, with an initial capacity of 105 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd); and 
  • Onshore gas pipeline to deliver the gas to the anchor gas offtakers via the Maghreb Europe Gas Pipeline, for which a tie-in agreement has already been signed.

Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) commercial proposals have now been requested. 

In addition to the FEED, Chariot has progressed other technical work, in the lead-up to development sanction, including: 

  • Environmental, Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), for which onshore and offshore environmental baseline surveys (EBS) have already been conducted; 
  • Field development plan (FDP) is being finalise by the Lixus joint venture partnership to enable the award of the production concession; 
  • Development drilling planning is ongoing which can further evaluate the potential of an additionalo 754 billion cubic feet (bcf) of 2U prospective gas resources for minimal additional cost. The targets identified have an independently assessed geological chance of success ranging from 49-61%.
