First Baltim South West natural gas well goes online with 100 mcf/d

The first of six wells in BP and Eni’s Baltim South West natural gas field has begun producing 100 mcf/d, the Oil Ministry said in a statement. The field’s total production is expected to reach 500 mcf/d once the other five wells are completed by 2Q2020. Eni, which shares production on the field with BP and the EGPC, had estimated the field to hold 1 tcf of natural gas when it was discovered in 2016. “Baltim South West development is yet another example of the joint efforts of BP and its partners to accelerate gas production commitments to Egypt,” BP North Africa Regional President Hesham Mekawi said, according to Energy Voice. “It demonstrates BP’s ongoing commitment to help meet Egypt’s growth in local energy demand with the Ministry of Petroleum and our partners.” Reuters also has the story.
