The West Delta Deep Marine Concession is located approximately ninety kilometers offshore Egypt, on the north-western margin of the Nile Delta. The water depth in the fields ranges from 400m to 1,000m. Significant gas reserves have been discovered in various reservoirs including Scarab, Saffron, Simian, Sienna, Sapphire, Sequoia, Saurus, Serpent, Mina, Silva, Sienna Up and Solar.
