Ramadan field covers some 2850 ac (11.5 km2; 4.5 mi2) in the offshore, central province of the Gulf of Suez basin, some 174 km (108 mi) to the southeast from Suez City (Figure 1). The field is estimated to contain several hundred million barrels of oil as ultimate recoverable reserves, making it the fourth largest oil field in Egypt. The field is located on a gulf parallel (clysmic trending) tilted fault block system, generated during two pulses of rifting. Within the same area, and situated on similar structures, are the July and El-Morgan oil fields which, together with Ramadan field, account for over 39% of the oil reserves in Egypt. The field is operated by the Gulf of Suez Petroleum Company (GUPCO), which is a joint venture between the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and AMOCO Egypt Oil Company (a subsidiary of AMOCO Production Company).
