BP PLC (BP.LN) said Monday that it has reached first gas production at the second stage of its West Nile Delta development offshore Egypt, keeping it on track to produce 900,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day by 2021.

The U.K. oil-and-gas major said the milestone was the second in a string of new upstream major projects expected to be brought online in 2019.

Peak production at the second stage of the West Nile Delta is expected to be around 700 million cubic feet of gas a day, the company said.

BP said that when fully on-stream later in the year, combined production from all three phases at the West Nile Delta is expected be around 1.4 billion cubic feet of gas a day, representing around 20% of Egypt's current gas production.

The company has an 82.8% operating stake in the development. BP said all the gas produced will be fed into Egypt's national gas grid.
