BP’s Khazzan gas project 80pc complete

MUSCAT, October 25, 2016

BP Oman has announced that phase one of its Khazzan natural gas project is 80 per cent complete and on track to deliver first gas towards the end of 2017, reported the Times of Oman.

The Khazzan drilling programme is also on schedule with 38 of the 50 wells needed by first gas already drilled, the report said.

More than 300 wells will eventually be drilled over the lifetime of the project. BP has plans in place with extensions to produce 1.5 billion cu ft of gas per day.

“This is a world class project and with key infrastructure and many buildings now in place it is possible to see the real shape and scale of the facility emerging,” Yousuf Al Ojaili, president of BP Oman was quoted as saying in the report.

“Our aim is for first gas to be flowing by the end of 2017, representing a significant moment for Oman, with the gas that comes from Khazzan substantially increasing our country’s overall supply and supporting greater diversification of Oman’s industrial base. Reliable gas supplies are needed for the country’s power sector and energy intensive industries. Also, this unique project is an excellent opportunity to develop Omani expertise in tight gas development and BP is proud to lead this effort,” he added.
