Raven is the third stage of the West Nile Delta development (following Taurus / Libra and Giza / Fayoum) from two BP-operated offshore concession blocks, North Alexandria and West Mediterranean Deepwater.
The Raven project includes 8 wells and will be developed as a deepwater long-distance tie back to shore, where the new Raven onshore plant is being built, immediately adjacent to the Giza / Fayoum facilities.
BP operates the West Nile Delta project. The first phase of the five-field development project, Taurus Libra, began production in March 2017 and the second phase, Giza Fayoum, began production in February 2019. The final stage, developing the Raven field, is expected to begin production by the end of 2019.
Total gas production from WND is expected to potentially reach up to 1.4 billion cubic feet a day (bcf/d) in 2020, equivalent to about 20% of Egypt’s current gas production. All the gas produced will be fed into the national gas grid.
