The first phase of development of Oman’s giant Khazzan gas field was officially inaugurated on Thursday 9 November 2017 by His Highness Sayyid Haitham bin Tarik Al’Said, Minister of Heritage & Culture for Oman, and Bob Dudley, BP’s group chief executive.

The Phase One development started gas production in September 2017, ten years after the signing of BP’s production sharing contract with Oman and almost four years after the development was approved.

Speaking at the Khazzan field, Bob Dudley said: “It is an honour to be here in Oman on this momentous occasion. Although this marks just the beginning of operations for Khazzan, we have already been working towards this for ten years, building close relationships with Oman and our partners. I expect these will continue to grow and deepen.

“Visiting this huge project that we have together built here in just a few years, I can see why it has been described as ‘the city in the sand’. And this city will deliver benefits for Oman and BP for decades to come. With an estimated 10.5 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas resources in place in Khazzan, this is very much just the start of the journey.”

Eng. Isam bin Saud Al Zidjali, CEO of Oman Oil Company, commented: “As an investment arm of the Sultanate in the energy sectors, we in Oman Oil are honoured to be part of the Khazzan Project and help maximize the value of Oman’s natural resources. I am delighted by the fact that the project has contributed to the sustainable development of the nation on many fronts, including human capital development, new technology applications, and social responsibility, to name only a few.”

Phase One of the Khazzan development will include a total of 200 wells feeding into a two-train central processing facility. At peak, the Phase One development involved a workforce of around 13,500. Phase One production is expected to plateau at 1 billion cubic feet of gas per day (bcf/d).

When the second phase of development of the Khazzan field - known as Ghazeer - is fully onstream total production is expected rise to 1.5 bcf/d. In total, approximately 300 wells are expected to be drilled over the estimated lifetime of these two phases of development of the Khazzan field.
