South Disouq Flows Could be Delayed

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

SDX Energy revealed that the start up date for gas production from its South Disouq development could be delayed. The current target for start up is mid-2019 based on an overall development concept, whereby an Early Production Facility (EPF) will be leased to process the gas prior to the completion of the main Central Processing Facility (CPF).

The company said that at present, the final commercial terms of the EPF have yet to be agreed upon. If ultimately an EPF is not secured, the start-up date for gas production will be delayed until the completion of the main CPF, currently expected in Q4 2019.

Paul Welch, President & CEO of SDX Canada, commented; “The potential delay to Q4 2019 for first gas in South Disouq is disappointing. Discussions on the merits of the EPF are ongoing, and we will advise the market when a final decision has been reached.”
