BP has a long history of oil and gas exploration and production in the Middle East. It is a major investor in Oman and one of the world’s pioneers in tight gas production, bringing technology and experience to develop one of the Middle East’s largest unconventional gas resources – the Khazzan field in Block 61.
In late September 2017, BP started production from Phase One of the Khazzan gas field. Phase One of Khazzan is made up of 200 wells feeding into a two-train central processing facility, with production reaching one-billion cubic feet of gas per day (bcf/d). Once the second phase of the Khazzan is fully up and running in 2021, production is expected to rise to 1.5 bcf/d. Approximately 300 wells are expected to be drilled over the estimated lifetime of the Khazzan field. Our people who are at the heart of everything we do will help us achieve that.
We began producing gas in Oman in 2017 and our field is expected to eventually supply 40% of the country’s daily gas needs
We commissioned independent assessments of labour conditions in our contractor workforce in Oman
