Upstream 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 2019 and beyond. 

Projects in construction

Alligin

Alligin is located 87 miles west of Shetland in a water depth of approximately 1,600 feet. The Alligin development will consist of two wells, which will be tied-back into the existing Schiehallion and Loyal subsea infrastructure, utilizing the processing and export facilities of the Glenn Lyon FPSO.

KG D6 Satellites

The Satellites project is the second of three projects in Block KG D6 off the east coast of India. It is a dry gas development and comprises four discoveries in 4,300 - 6,200 feet water depth. It will be developed as a five well subsea tie back to the existing control and riser platform off Block KG D6. KG D6 integrated development is aimed at delivering one billion standard cubic feet gross production a day by 2022 and supports country agenda by increasing domestic gas supply.

Khazzan Phase 2 (Ghazeer)

The second phase of the onshore Khazzan field development involves drilling approximately 100 wells, construction of a third train, a new export pipeline and tie-in to the existing Phase 1 facilities. The second phase (Ghazeer) is expected to deliver an additional 0.5bcf/d and over 15,000 barrels a day of condensate, bringing total Khazzan gas production to ~ 1.5bcf/d.

Tortue Phase 1

Tortue Phase 1 is the first phase of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project which will produce gas from an ultra-deepwater subsea system and mid-water floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The gas will be transferred to a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility at an innovative nearshore hub located on the Mauritania and Senegal maritime border. The FLNG facility is designed to provide circa 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum on average, with the total gas resources in the field estimated to be around 15 trillion cubic feet.
