Major projects 2020

Following on from successful start-ups in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, bp started up four new projects in 2020 making a contribution to the 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (mboed) of new production, net to bp by 2021

Atlantis Phase 3

~20 mboed peak annual average production, net to bp
 
Atlantis Phase 3 included the construction of a new subsea production system from eight new wells that are tied into the current Atlantis platform, 150 miles south of New Orleans in water depth of over 7,000 feet.

KG D6 R Cluster

~30 mboed peak annual average production, net to bp

 

The R Cluster project is the first of three projects in Block KG D6 off the east coast of India. The gas field is located approximately 45 miles offshore in water-depths of more than 6,500 feet. The R Cluster project was developed as a six well subsea tie back to the existing control and riser platform off Block KG D6.

Khazzan Phase 2 (Ghazeer)

~70 mboed** peak annual average production, net to bp

The second phase of the onshore Khazzan field development included 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 35,000 barrels a day of condensate, bringing total Khazzan gas production to ~ 1.5bcf/d.

**On 1 February 2021, we announced the divestment of a 20%  of our 60% share in Oman’s Block 61, reducing our net peak annual production from 115mboed to 70mboed. For more information on the divestment, please see the press release.

Vorlich

~15 mboed peak annual average production, net to bp

Vorlich, a two-well development approximately 150 miles east of Aberdeen, is tied back to the Ithaca Energy-operated FPF-1 floating production facility, which lies at the centre of Greater Stella Area production hub. Through an innovative partnership, bp acted as operator during the development phase, drilling the wells and installing the wellheads. Ithaca Energy, whose FPF-1 floating production facility will process Vorlich's hydrocarbons, installed subsea infrastructure and executed the modifications on FPF-1. Shortly before production came online, Ithaca assumed operatorship of the field from bp.
