BP has started up the second phase of its gas operations in Oman, with the launch of the Ghazeer project.
The company had expected to reach first gas at the field in 2021 but has brought the 0.5 billion cubic feet per day project on line four months ahead of schedule.
BP approved Ghazeer in April 2018.
“This is another example of our business performing while transforming. This underpins our financial framework and is absolutely central to BP. The hydrocarbon business provides funding for low carbon business and is absolutely aligned with our net zero plans,” energyvoice.com quoted BP’s executive vice president of production and operations Gordon Birrell saying in an interview.
We’re starting production from Ghazeer gas field in Oman. This major new project reflects bp’s commitment to resilient and focused hydrocarbons. Plus, using ‘green completions’ 201,000 tonnes of CO2e emissions have been saved in Oman since 2019.
