West Nile Delta – Taurus / Libra, Egypt

Completed:
24 Mar 2017
80 mboed peak annual average production, net to BP

The WND development consists of five gas fields across two BP-operated offshore concession blocks, North Alexandria and West Mediterranean Deepwater.? Production from the five fields is expected to reach up to 1.3 billion cubic feet a day (bcf/d), equivalent to about 30 per cent of Egypt’s current gas production. All the produced gas will be fed into the national gas grid.

?

The West Nile Delta development has been executed as two major projects enabling BP to accelerate its gas production commitment to Egypt. The Taurus and Libra project is a subsea greenfield development with nine wells (six in Taurus and three in Libra) and a 42 km tie back. Gas will be processed at an existing onshore processing facility and will enter into the Egyptian national gas grid via a nearby export pipeline.

?

Production started on the 24 March 2017 from Taurus and Libra, which were fast-tracked to add up to 600 mmscfd daily to the Egyptian national gas grid.

?

Giza, Fayoum and Raven are the remaining three fields of the West Nile Delta development. The project includes fifteen wells and two deep-water long distance subsea tie-backs to the shore.? Fluids will be processed through an onshore plant modified for Giza Fayoum and integrated with a new adjacent onshore plant for Raven. First gas from Giza / Fayoum is expected in 2018, followed by Raven in 2019.
