Subsea 7: West Nile Delta flows first gas offshore Egypt
Gas production has started ahead of schedule at BP’s West Nile Delta Phase One project offshore Egypt, according to Subsea 7.
The contractor, which provided SURF services for the project, continues to work on the West Nile Delta platform extension and tie-in and BP’s Atoll project in the same area.
“Offshore Egypt, the West Nile Delta Phase One project was substantially completed and first gas was achieved ahead of schedule. Awarded in 2015, this project embraced new ways of working established in the industry downturn and its successful completion reflects the benefits of collaboration and early engagement. Also offshore Egypt, good progress was made on the West Nile Delta platform extension and tie-in and the Atoll projects.”
