BP in Egypt
We take great pride in honoring our commitment to Egypt for 50 years. We remain committed to play a part in unlocking Egypt’s energy potential and to grow production safely, reliably and efficiently.
What we do
BP has a long and successful track record in Egypt stretching back 50 years. In Egypt our business is primarily in exploration and production. BP currently produces almost 15% of Egypt’s entire oil production and more than 30% of Egypt’s gas production with its partners. BP is working to meet Egypt’s domestic market growth by actively exploring in the Nile Delta and investing to add production from existing discoveries.
Our operations and partners
Over the years we have established strong relationships with the Egyptian Government and the Ministry of Petroleum. Our pioneering partnership with the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) has made our joint venture, the Gulf of Suez Petroleum Company (GUPCO), an industry leader and one of the largest oil and gas operations in the entire region. With GUPCO leading our operations since the 1960s, we have successfully managed to maintain oil production flat in the Gulf of Suez and our goal is to grow and sustain production levels for the years ahead.
We are also committed to being a prominent player in the new phase of Egypt’s hydrocarbon industry and the development of a world scale gas business in the offshore Nile Delta. In 2008, BP Egypt and its partners in Ras El Barr (REB) Concession established the Pharaonic Petroleum Company (PhPC), BP's second successful joint venture with the Egyptian government, to efficiently run the gas business within REB concession. This JV is designed to be an efficient and effective vehicle for our gas production growth plans in this area.
The West Nile Delta (WND) Major Project is our first operation in Egypt through a BP operating company. With our partner, WND represents the largest tranche of Egypt’s new gas providing a major new source of gas for the domestic market in Egypt.
BP is also a 33% shareholder in an NGL plant extracting LPG and Propane, United Gas Derivatives Company (UGDC) partnered with ENI/IEOC and GASCO (the Egyptian midstream gas distribution company).
BP is present in the downstream sector through Natural Gas Vehicles Company (NGVC, BP 40%) which was established in September 1995 as the first company in Africa and the Middle East to commercialize natural gas as an alternative fuel for vehicles.
BP is committed to a wide-ranging social investment programme focused on education, training, and skills development. BP Egypt supports several educational initiatives, including funding scholarships for top Egyptian graduates to pursue post-graduate studies at the prestigious Cambridge University in the UK, in addition to scholarships through the Chevening scheme. BP Egypt also partners with local prominent NGOs to provide training and skills development. Moreover, BP is committed to well-structured community development projects focusing on four main strategic lines of community development: education, health, entrepreneurship, and environmental protection. These projects will benefit the communities where we operate.
Our commitment to integrity
BP is committed to follow policies on ethical conduct, employee relations, health, safety, security, environment control and finance. BP strives continuously to achieve its aspiration of no accidents, no harm to people, and no damage to the environment.
