About BP
The new North Africa Region effective 1st January 2014 covers Algeria, Libya and Egypt. The merge of the two regions delivers efficiency, synergy, creates more opportunities and a stronger platform for business development and more effective and efficient operations within the Region. The new region has a fantastic portfolio of assets that allows our staff to work across a broader, more exciting portfolio and help to ensure that there is a continued activity set of projects to be worked on in the future.

BP is the largest foreign investor in Algeria. It has delivered two world class gas developments: In Salah Gas and In Amenas, both run as Operated by Others (OBO) and are Joint Ventures (JVs) between Sonatrach (the Algerian state energy company), BP and Statoil. In Salah Gas (ISG) is one of the largest dry gas joint-venture projects in Algeria and produces around 8-9 billion cubic metres/annum of dry gas (140-155 mboed). In Amenas is one of the largest wet gas projects in the country, involving the development and production of natural gas and gas liquids from wet gas fields in the Illizi basin of South Eastern Algeria and produces around 9 billion cubic metres/ annum gas and 50-60 mboed liquids (gross).

In Libya, BP entered into an Exploration and Production Sharing Agreement (EPSA) with the Libyan National Oil Company (NOC) in 2007. The exploration work completed to date, including BP largest ever 3D seismic survey, puts Libya among the most prospective locations in BP's portfolio.

BP possesses a long standing history in Egypt with successful operations for almost 50 years and is one of the main pillars of the Egyptian oil and gas industry. BP is currently investing $1.5 billion per annum, which is expected to increase significantly with the West Nile Delta project execution. BP operates in Egypt through Joint Ventures under Production Sharing Agreements: The oil business is operated by Gupco (Gulf of Suez Oil Company), and the gas business in the East Nile Delta is operated by PhPC (Pharaonic Petroleum Company) and Petrobel (Eni's JV). The West Nile Delta (WND) Major Project will be BP's first operation in Egypt without a JV in a Tax & Royalty regime. BP is also a 33% shareholder in an NGL plant extracting LPG and Propane, UGDC (United Gas Derivatives Company) partnered with ENI/IEOC and GASCO (the Egyptian midstream gas distribution company).

With WND coming in Egypt, significant OBO operations in Egypt and Algeria and BP's largest ever single investment in an exploration programme in Libya, all on the doorstep of major European markets, the new North Africa region is highly significant for the future of BP's business.
