UK oil major BP and Italian firm Eni have joined forces to progress a new exploration opportunity in Oman.

The pair will work with Oman’s government to finalise new exploration and production sharing agreement for Block 77 in central Oman.

Bernard Looney, BP chief executive upstream, said: “This would represent a further deepening of BP’s important position in Oman, building on our successful delivery of the major Khazzan project in 2017 and its second phase of development that is currently under construction.

“e look forward to continuing to explore and efficiently develop the country’s resources, working in close partnership with Eni and Oman to underpin our commitment to delivering long-term gas production for Oman.”

Block 77, with a total area of almost 3,100 km2, is located in central Oman, 30 km east of the BP-operated Block 61 which contains the already-producing Khazzan gas project as well as the Ghazeer project, currently under development.
