First in trio of deepwater gas projects in partnership with Reliance that are expected to help meet India’s rapidly expanding energy needs
25 August 2020: Atlantis Phase 3, bp’s first major project start-up of 2020, is completed safely and on time despite the unprecedented challenges of a global pandemic. The subsea tie-back, which is expected to boost production at the platform in the US Gulf of Mexico by an estimated 36,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day gross at its peak, represents a key component in the transformation of bp into an integrated energy company.
12 October 2020: bp begins production from the Ghazeer field in the Omani desert ahead of schedule. Our latest gas start-up, which features low-emissions technology built in from the start, delivers critical national infrastructure for Oman and exemplifies what a resilient and focused hydrocarbons business looks like.
26 October 2020: bp starts gas production from the Qattameya field offshore Egypt in the East Nile Delta. Qattameya, which will reach estimated production of 50 million cubic feet of gas per day, is tied back to existing assets and infrastructure, meaning it could be developed efficiently and economically.
26 November 2020: Vorlich, a subsea tie-back that’s part of bp’s programme to develop satellite fields through existing hubs, comes online. The North Sea development is expected to produce 20,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day.
18 December 2020: R Cluster – the first in the trio of KG D6 deepwater gas projects in partnership with Reliance – comes online. The R Cluster field is expected to produce 12.9 million cubic metres a day and, along with Satellites Cluster and MJ, to meet approximately 15% of India’s gas demand by 2023.
