BP starts gas production at Qattameya gas field

BP has started gas production from its Qattameya gas field in the North Damietta offshore concession through its Pharaonic Petroleum Company JV, the company said in a statement (pdf) yesterday. The field, discovered in 2017, is expected to produce up to 50 mn cubic feet of gas per day, and is tied to the Ha’py and Tuart fields via a 50 km pipeline. BP holds 100% equity in the concession in the East Nile Delta, and directs gas production to Egypt’s national grid.

Staying the course paid off, regional boss says: Karim Alaa, BP’s North Africa regional president, called the operation “a great example of resilient hydrocarbons development. We are proud to have brought this project safely onstream through an extremely challenging period. Our team continues to work to support Egypt realise the potential of its energy resources, adding to our track-record of delivery and enabled by our established partnerships with the Egyptian petroleum sector.”
