On 31/03/2017, AGOCO has launched the operations of a new gathering station lined to Messla field where 5 news wells of about 9000 barrels of crude oil a day per day were opened on production.
This reservoir of these wells which is located on the north side of Sarir field, adjacent to southern edge of Messla field in south-east of Sirte basin, was discovered in 1993 after drilling well no. (VV1-65). The production of this reservoir is expected to continue for more than 45 years.
This station is standalone and does not depend on the electric power of Messla field, where solar energy technology is used to provide electricity to operate chemicals injection system and a central system of cathodic protection which was designed to reduce the effort and time in monitoring protection performance from wellhead to the point of connection to Messla field link, this is in addition to the multi-flow meter system and, which is one of the latest technologies in the measurement used for the first time in Libya, where contribute to conduct production tests of the wells without the need for traditional facilities used in this regard, in addition to being Eco-friendly equipment.
