Tagged with:

Oil and gas giant has commenced production from the Qattameya gas field in the North Damietta offshore concession in the in Egypt.

bp, through its joint venture – Pharaonic Petroleum Company (PhPC), has developed the shallow water gas field via a one-well subsea development and tie-back to existing infrastructure.‎

The oil and gas giant’s partner in Pharaonic Petroleum Company is Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS).

According to bp, the Qattameya gas field is anticipated to have a daily production of up to 50 million cubic feet of gas.

Karim Alaa – bp North regional president said: “By building on bp’s significant ‎existing assets and infrastructure offshore Egypt, we were able to develop Qattameya ‎efficiently and economically.

“Creating value through high quality, efficient oil and gas ‎developments is a key part of bp’s strategy. We see this as 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 realising the potential of ‎its energy resources, adding to our track-record of delivery and enabled by our established ‎partnerships with the Egyptian petroleum sector.”

Qattameya gas field brought into production nearly three years after discovery

Discovered in 2017, the Qattameya gas field is located nearly 45 km west ‎of the Ha’py platform, and is contained in 108 metres of water.

The bp gas field in Egypt is tied back to the Ha’py and Tuart field ‎development through a new 50km pipeline. It is also connected to the existing subsea ‎utilities of the Ha’py and Tuart field ‎development through a 50 km umbilical.

bp has a 100% stake in the North Damietta offshore concession, which is located in the East Nile Delta. ‎The gas produced from the Qattameya gas field is directed to the Egyptian national grid.‎
