BP Egypt has declared its first gas from the Deka project offshore Egypt with the start of production from the Denise South-6 well at an initial rate of 50 million cubic feet per day (mmscf/d). The Deka project is centred on the Denise and Karawan gas fields in Temsah Concession in the East Nile Delta and will supply the country’s domestic market, Trade Arabia reported. BP and ENI each hold a 50 per cent interest in the Temsah concession. Deka is operated by the Petrobel joint venture. BP North Africa regional president Hesham Mekawi pointed out that the Deka project was another example of the company’s commitment to Egypt and longstanding Egyptian partnerships. “We look forward to continuing to play a key role in the development of Egypt’s energy sector and maximising the use of our existing resources to help meet the country’s growing energy demands for years to come,” he remarked.
