BP Sees Second Stage of West Nile Delta Online

BP has started production from additional two West Nile Delta gas fields, Giza and Fayoum, offshore Egypt.

Gas is flowing ashore from the recently completed eight wells through new subsea infrastructure and pipelines.

The West Nile Delta development has reached first gas from the two fields on schedule and below budget.

Giza and Fayoum will initially produce around 400 million cubic feet of gas per day (mmscfd) and are expected to ramp up to a maximum rate of approximately 700 mmscfd.

Bob Dudley, BP chief executive, said: “This important project start-up benefitted from the excellent working relationship between BP and the Egyptian government. We simply could not have delivered it successfully without the steadfast support of the Minister of Petroleum, his excellent team and the entire 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.”
