West Nile Delta Project

The West Nile Delta (WND) project involves the development of gas and condensate fields located within the North Alexandria (N Alex) and West Mediterranean Deepwater concessions off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt.

The gas development project is being carried out in three phases. The first phase involved the development of Taurus and Libra gas fields, and the second saw the development of the Giza and Fayoum fields.  Raven field will be developed in the third phase, while the Maadi, Viper, Ruby, Polaris and Hodoa discoveries will be developed in later phases.

The Kentech team mobilised to the West Nile Delta project in November 2017.  We have provided our client, BP, with a crew of competent, qualified, skilled and experienced commissioning engineers and technicians to manage the execution of mechanical completion and static & dynamic commissioning services. This included loop checking, cleaning / flushing of pipework, motor runs, 4 hour dynamic equipment runs, functional test procedures and creation of handover dossiers to the operations team.

We were also approached by the client to provide an Operations team who are responsible for start-up and stay up of the plant and ensuring that the required safety procedures are adhered to.


On Tuesday 9th February 2021, we announced an agreement to acquire the oil & gas business of SNC-Lavalin’s Resources Division.

This business includes people and assets brought together through their acquisition of the Kentz and other energy services businesses. This transaction marks an exciting, ground-breaking development for Kentech to reinforce our position as a leading integrated energy services provider and introduces us to the renewable / clean power marketplace. We now move forward together with a global network of more than 10,000 professionals united by a commitment of common values and strong partnerships with clients from across the world.

By investing now, we are strategically positioning the company to take advantage of the next cycle of growth.

Our complementary businesses will join forces, creating a stronger offering across the full asset life cycle – from consulting to design and build, commissioning and start-up, through to maintenance, modification and turnaround, as well as decommissioning services.
