BP says gas production has started from the second stage of its West Nile Delta development offshore Egypt, where peak production is expected to reach ~700M cf/day of gas by April.

BP says production at several fields in the area would rise to nearly 1.4B cf/day this year.

The West Nile Delta project includes five gas fields originally planned as two separate projects, but BP and its partners then decided to deliver it in three stages, “accelerating delivery of gas production commitments to Egypt.”
