Major projects

A diversified portfolio of projects, underpinning high-quality growth to 2021 and beyond
Upstream major projects
By 2021, we expect to add 900 mboed of new production net to bp from our major projects compared with our 2015 base portfolio, the majority of which have passed through the final investment decision and are complete or well under construction. You can find more information on our projects in the construction and design stages in the map below.

In addition to the map above we provide details of our construction and design phase projects below.  Also provided are links to pages detailing projects in operation or scheduled for start-up in 2021 and beyond.

Herschel is a three-well tie-in to Na Kika driven by the success of the H-5 ILX well, inclusive of H-5, Nebula, and Titania. Two M55 wells will tie-in to an extension of the Manuel high pressure flowline and one M60 well will tie-in to the existing South Oil Loop.

KG D6 MJ

The MJ project is the third phase of Block KG D6 development off the east coast of India. Together three projects are expected to develop a total of about 3 trillion cubic feet of discovered gas resources. MJ field is located approximately 20 miles offshore and in 2,300-3,600 feet water depth. Seven subsea wells will tie-back to a new Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel to process  and separate liquids. Gas will be exported to the onshore terminal through an existing 24-inch pipeline.

Mad Dog Phase 2

The Mad Dog Phase 2 project includes a new semi-submersible floating production platform with the capacity to produce up to 140,000 gross barrels of crude oil per day from 14 production wells and inject up to 140,000 barrels of water per day using a LoSal system to enhance oil recovery. The new platform will be moored approximately six miles southwest of the existing Mad Dog platform, which is located in 4,500 feet of water about 190 miles south of New Orleans.
