bp Starts Gas Production from Qattameya Field

bp announced the start of gas production from its latest development ‎offshore Egypt, the Qattameya gas field in the North Damietta offshore concession.

Through bp’s joint venture, Pharaonic Petroleum Company (PhPC), the field, which is ‎expected to produce up to 50 million cubic feet of gas per day, has been developed ‎through a one-well subsea development and tie-back to existing infrastructure.‎

Qattameya, whose discovery was announced in 2017, is located approximately 45 km west ‎of the Ha’py platform, in 108 metres of water. It is tied back to the Ha’py and Tuart field ‎development via a new 50km pipeline and is also connected to their existing subsea ‎utilities via a 50 kilometre umbilical.

‎bp holds 100% equity in the North Damietta offshore concession in the East Nile Delta. ‎Gas production from the field is directed to Egypt’s national grid.‎
