BP at present introduced the beginning of fuel manufacturing from the Atoll Phase One mission positioned offshore Egypt within the North Damietta concession within the East Nile Delta, this seven months forward of schedule and 33% under the preliminary value estimate.
The mission is now producing 350 million cubic toes of fuel a day (mmscfd) and 10,000 barrels a day (bpd) of condensate. Gas manufacturing from the sphere is directed to Egypt’s nationwide grid.
Atoll is the primary new mission to come back into manufacturing for BP in 2018, including to the sequence of higher-margin tasks efficiently introduced on-line over the previous few years. The 13 tasks that started-up by 2016 and 2017 offered greater than 500,000 barrels of oil equal a day (boed) of latest internet manufacturing capability and complete internet manufacturing from BP’s new tasks is now anticipated to be 900,000 boed by 2021.
Bob Dudley, BP group chief govt, mentioned: “BP is concentrated on delivering development with self-discipline, rigorously selecting and effectively executing high-quality tasks. The longstanding partnerships we’ve got in Egypt allowed us to fast-track Atoll’s growth and ship first fuel solely 33 months after discovery. This is an additional demonstration of our dedication to assist realise Egypt’s oil and fuel potential and meet the rising demand from its rising inhabitants.”
BP introduced the Atoll discovery in March 2015. The fundamental reservoir within the area incorporates an estimated 1.5 trillion cubic toes (tcf) of fuel and 31 million barrels of condensates and additional segments are below analysis.
The Atoll Phase One mission is an early manufacturing scheme involving virtually $1 billion funding. The mission concerned recompletion of the unique exploration nicely as a producing nicely and the drilling of two further manufacturing wells, accomplished August 2015 to February 2017. Production is exported to the prevailing onshore West Harbor fuel processing plant. Installation of the mandatory subsea infrastructure and upgrading of onshore services was accomplished forward of schedule. (Source: BP)
