Production has started at a giant gas field in Oman.

Phase One of the Khazzan field, operated by BP in partnership with Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production, is expected to plateau at one billion cubic feet of gas per day (bcf/d).

Once the second phase is up and running, production is expected to rise to 1.5bcf/d.

The two phases are to develop an estimated 10.5 trillion cubic feet of recoverable gas resources.

In total, around 300 wells are to be drilled over the estimated lifetime of the Khazzan field.
