"This important project start-up benefitted from the excellent working relationship between BP and the Egyptian government.  We simply could not have delivered it successfully without the steadfast support of the Minister of Petroleum, his excellent team and the entire government.

 

“With the second stage of West Nile Delta now online, BP has now safely brought 21 new upstream major projects into production over the last three years, keeping us on track to deliver 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2021." 
 

Bob Dudley, BP group chief executive

 

 

West Nile Delta - Giza / Fayoum is the second stage of the West Nile Delta five-field development (following startup of Taurus / Libra in 2017). The concession agreement is to develop 5 trillion cubic feet of gas resources and 55 million barrels of condensates from two BP-operated offshore concession blocks, North Alexandria and West Mediterranean Deepwater.

 

The Giza / Fayoum project includes eight wells and has been developed as a deepwater long distance tie back to shore, where an existing onshore plant has been refurbished and modified.
