Shell Egypt and Partners Launch 11th Phase Development in Nile Delta Offshore Concession

Published on : 2024-04-22

Shell Egypt, along with partners EGAS, EGPC, and Petronas, have agreed to commence the 11th development phase in Egypt’s Nile Delta offshore West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) concession in the Mediterranean Sea.

The Phase 11 project involves drilling three development wells using the Scaraboe 9 offshore drilling rig. This rig is currently drilling three wells in Phase 10, sanctioned in 2023 and started drilling in March 2024. Consecutively drilling Phase 10 and Phase 11 presents significant operational and cost optimization opportunities, maximizing the value of rig mobilization at the site.

Dalia Elgabry, Shell’s Vice President & Country Chair for Egypt, stated, “Shell is proud to continue its collaboration with the Egyptian government and partners to unlock the full potential of the West Delta Deep Marine concession. Phase 11 is a significant investment to secure additional gas supply into Egypt’s energy system, and we are committed to delivering this project efficiently and safely.”

Shell and partners have developed the WDDM concession across 11 phases, comprising 17 gas fields located at water depths ranging from 300 meters to 1,200 meters, spanning approximately 90-120 kilometers from the shore.
