Chief executive Bob Dudley, who praised the Egyptian government for its support in bringing the project to life, said: "With the second stage of West Nile Delta now online, BP has now safely brought 21 new upstream major projects into production over the last three years, keeping us on track to deliver 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2021."
The 82.75% owned West Nile project, which follows the launch of BP's Anadarko-operated Constellation oil project in the Gulf of Mexico back in January, is made up of a total of five gas fields across the North Alexandria and West Mediterranean Deepwater offshore concession blocks. ■
