Cairo – Mubasher: BP announced the commencement of gas production from its Qattameya gas field in the North Damietta offshore concession through Pharaonic Petroleum Company, a joint venture between the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and the British oil company.

The expected production from the field, discovered in 2017, is up to 50 million cubic feet of gas per day, according to a statement on Monday.

The field, situated about 45 kilomeres (km) west of the Ha’py platform in 108 metres of water, is tied to the Ha’py and Tuart fields via a 50-kilometre pipeline.

BP owns 100% interest in the North Damietta offshore concession and directs gas outputs to Egypt’s national grid.

Karim Alaa, BP’s North Africa regional president, said, “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.”
