Mellitah oil company recovers stuck pipeline, saves over $20 million

Mellitah Oil and Gas Company of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) has carried out a fishing operation to recover a production string stuck in the CE02 well at Bahr Essalam, Libya's largest producing offshore gas field.

"The operation took 24 days and was conducted by the drill team of the company," NOC said.

The operation spared the company the expenses of digging a side track and changing the course of the well, estimated to cost at least $ 23 million, according to the NOC.
