The MGD Project, which is the 1st new offshore gas development project in the Romanian Black Sea to be built after 1989, consists of 5 offshore production wells (1 subsea well at Doina field and 4 platform wells at Ana field) a subsea gas production system over the Doina well which will be connected through an 18 km pipeline with a new unmanned production platform located over Ana field. A 126 km gas pipeline will link the Ana platform to the shore and to a new onshore gas treatment plant (“GTP”) in Corbu commune, Constanta county, with a capacity of 1 BCM per year representing 10% of Romania’s consumption. The processed gas will be delivered into the National Transmission System operated by SNTGN Transgaz SA (“Transgaz”) at the gas metering station to be found within the GTP.

Gigi Dragomir, NAMR President, said: “The Development of the Ana and Doina gas fields offshore Romania is a top priority for NAMR, which supports the implementation of the Romanian Offshore Project that could lead to the diversification of the supply sources in Romania.”
