The Beginning of the Production from Oman Khazzan Oil Field by BP

The Ministry of Oil & Gas of Oman and BP have announced that production has begun from the giant Khazzan gas field, which is operated by BP in partnership with Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production.
Bob Dudley, BP Group Chief Executive, commented, “The start of production from Khazzan, BP’s sixth and largest major project start-up so far this year, is an important milestone in our strategic partnership with Oman. With further development already planned, this giant field has the potential to produce gas for Oman for decades to come.”
BP expects to start-up seven upstream major projects in 2017 – making it one of the most important years for commissioning new  projects in BP’s history. These seven projects are expected to make a significant contribution to the 800,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day of production that BP expects to add by 2020.
Phase 1 of the Khazzan development is made up of 200 wells feeding into a two-train central processing facility. Phase 1 production is expected to plateau at 1 billion cu ft of gas per day (bcf/d).
