The West Nile Delta Project (WND) involves the development of gas and condensate fields, located approximately 85 kilometres off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt.
Operator BP and their partner DEA are developing these fields in separate phases. Phase one consists of five major fields: Taurus, Libra, Giza, Fayoum and Raven, with further projects (Maadi, Viper, Ruby, Polaris and Hodoa) earmarked for future development.
BP’s phase three of the $12 billion West Nile Delta project offshore Egypt will come online by the end of 2020, nearly 12 months behind the earlier scheduled deadline, the company said in a conference call.
The third phase includes the development of the Raven field, located in the offshore area encompassing five gas fields across the North Alexandria and West Mediterranean Deepwater offshore concession blocks which BP is developing in phases.
“The Raven project in Egypt is now expected to come on stream around the end of 2020,” said BP during the quarterly results call. To remind, BP had in February 2019 said it would bring Raven online by the end of 2019.
BP holds an 82.75% stake in the project. DEA Deutsche Erdoel holds the remaining 17,25%.
