BP Egypt has discovered natural gas in the North Damietta Offshore concession in Egypt’s East Nile Delta. The Atoll-1 deepwater exploration well reached a depth of 6400 m and intersected approximately 50 m of gas pay in a high-quality Oligocene sandstone reservoir. This marks BP’s second discovery in the Nile Delta since its 2013 Salamat discovery, 15 km to the south. Atoll was drilled at a 923-m water depth, 80 km north of Damietta. BP is the operator and holds a 100% interest in the concession.
