Oman: Gas Project BP Announces Development of Ghazeer Gas Field
Post a final investment decision in the second phase of the Khazzan field in Oman, BP will start development of the Ghazeer project. Once complete, both the developments are expected to produce 10.5 trillion cubic feet of gas and around 350 million barrels of condensate.
Oman – BP will add another 0.5 billion cubic feet of gas a day to its production from the giant Khazzan field in Oman’s Block 61, following a final investment decision (FID) to develop the second phase of the project – the Ghazeer project. Together with its partner, the Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production, BP confirmed that the Ghazeer project is expected to go on stream in 2021.
Drilling on three development wells is already underway, with initial construction work also in progress at Khazzan to accommodate a third gas train. The gas field is expected to support Oman’s energy needs. The approval of the Ghazeer project follows the successful start-up of Khazzan’s first phase of development in September 2017.
One of BP’s seven major projects in the previous year, the project is now producing at design capacity of around 1 billion cubic feet of gas a day (bcf/d) and around 35,000 barrels a day of condensate. Together, the Khazzan and Ghazeer developments are expected to deliver a total production of 10.5 trillion cubic feet of gas and around 350 million barrels of condensate until the end of the concession in 2043.
