Major plans: The BP projects set to come onstream in 2017

Date: 3 February 2017

From the waters of the North Sea to the deserts of Oman, BP's energy projects span across the world in some of the most remote locations. Now, as 2017 begins, it promises to be a big year for BP with seven major projects coming onstream expected to provide over 500,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed) of new capacity by year-end. BP Magazine takes a look at the numbers behind these massive projects

1. West Nile Delta - Taurus/Libra

West Nile Delta represents two projects expected to develop 5 trillion cubic feet of gas resources and 55 million barrels of condensates from two BP-operated offshore concession blocks


2. Khazzan Phase 1

The first phase of the Khazzan development plan involves drilling approximately 200 wells and constructing a two-train central processing facility


3. Juniper

Juniper involves the construction of a normally unmanned platform and subsea infrastructure that will produce gas from the Corallita and Lantaria fiels located 50 miles (80 kilometres) off the coast of Trinidad


4. Quad 204

A new Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel will extend and expand recovery from the Schiehallion field through to 2035, including an extension of the existing subsea system.


5. Thunder Horse South Expansion

This project involves a new subsea drill centre located two miles (three kilometres) from the Thunder Horse platform. Three new wells and an existing fourth will tie into the drill centre

6. Trinidad Onshore Compression

The Trinidad onshore compression project will increase production from low-pressure wells in existing acreage in the Columbus Basin, using an additional inlet compressor at the Point Fortin Atlantic Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant


7. Persephone

Persephone is a two-well subsea tieback to the existing Rankin complex, located 85 miles (140 kilometres) northwest of Karratha, Western Australia
