BP has announced that first gas production has started from the second phase of its West Nile Delta development, offshore Egypt.
BP has an 82.75% operating stake in the project, which produces gas from the Giza and Fayoum fields. The fields have eight wells and produce 400 mcf of gas per day, with production expected to ramp up to 700 mcf per day.
BP chief executive Bob Dudley said: “This important project start-up benefitted from the excellent working relationship between BP and the Egyptian government. With the second stage of West Nile Delta now online, BP has now safely brought 21 new upstream major projects into production over the last three years, keeping us on track to deliver 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2021.”
Production from Giza and Fayoum will sustain local energy supply and keep BP on track to triple its net production from Egypt by 2020.
