The Bouri field lies in water depths between 145m and 183m, offshore the Libyan coast, in the Mediterranean Sea. The field is located in the block NC-41, which contains one oil reservoir and two gas reservoirs.
The field is operated by ENI (30%) in partnership with state-owned National Oil Corporation (70%), with the two partners jointly setting up Mellitah Oil and Gas Company to manage the field.
Production from the field started in 1988 through two production platforms and Sloug floating storage and offloading (FSO) vessel. In 2012 it was announced that the existing FSO will be replaced by a new FSO named Gaza. Built at a cost of $424.78m, the new vessel reached the Libyan field in May 2016.
