BP has plugged and abandoned the Burtocal North-1 exploration well in the Gulf of Suez North Shadwan concession in Egypt.

The well was drilled to 3,659m, but failed to encounter significant hydrocarbons, North Shadwan’s partner Beach Petroleum said in a statement.

BP previously found oil in the NS 377-3 well.

Production from the 377 field is expected to start at the Ras Ghara facility in early 2010.
