UK-based energy giant and LNG player BP reported a surge in its fourth-quarter earnings boosted by higher oil and gas prices and a rise in production from new projects.

BP’s underlying replacement cost profit, the company’s version of net profit, was at $2.1 billion, compared with $400 million in the same quarter of 2016.

For the full-year of 2017, BP’s profit rose to $6.2 billion from $2.6 billion in 2016.

BP’s chief executive Bob Dudley said 2017 was one of the strongest years in the company’s recent history.

The company launched seven new major projects during the year under review, boosting oil and gas production by 12 percent to 3.6 million barrels of oil equivalent a day, excluding its share of production from Russian partner Rosneft.

“We enter the second year of our five-year plan with real momentum, increasingly confident that we can continue to deliver growth across our business, improving cash flows and returns for shareholders out to 2021 and beyond,” Dudley said.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
