BP West Nile Delta Valves – Project Overview

The West Nile Delta (WND) Gas Development will develop a series of gas condensate fields, located within the North Alexandria concession, offshore the Arab Republic of Egypt. The development will utilise subsea wells and associated gathering systems flowing to an onshore reception and processing terminal for treatment.

The fields are located in water depths ranging from 300 to 750m and up to 80km offshore. The wells will be tied back to subsea manifolds before flowing to shore through a three field dedicated multiphase gathering systems tied into two trunk lines which transport the production to the onshore gas terminal.
