BP says makes deep gas discovery in Nile Delta

LONDON, Jan 31 (Reuters) - London-based oil major BP BP.L said on Thursday it had made a significant gas discovery at record depths in Egypt's Nile Delta.

The well, which was drilled to a Nile Delta record depth of more than 6,500 metres, is the first significant high-pressure, high-temperature, offshore oligocene discovery, BP said in a statement.
