BP brought a pair of offshore natural gas fields on line in Egypt and India, adding almost 850 MMcf/d of gas to its current production. The UK supermajor brought on the Raven development offshore Egypt, the third part of its West Nile Delta complex. The field is producing 600 MMcf/d on its way to a peak of 900 MMcf/d and 30,000 barrels per day of condensate. All of the gas is flowing into Egypt's domestic grid. BP operates the field with an 82.75% stake with Wintershall Dea controlling the remainder. In India, Reliance and partner BP have started production at their second deepwater gas field in India's KG D6 Block two months ahead of schedule. The Satellite Cluster field is expected to add 6 MMcm-7 MMcm/d (177 MMcf-247 MMcf/d) of production, making it the second in a trio of development slated to meet 15% of India's gas demand. The developments will utilize existing hub infrastructure in the KG D6 Block, which is owned 66.67% by operator Reliance with BP holding 33.33%.
