The Blythe gas field contains 33 Bcf of 2P reserves and is an important part of the combined Blythe and Vulcan Satellites hub developments, says IOG. 

Am FDP for Blythe was initially submitted in December 2016 and re-submitted in July 2017, as part of a joint development plan with IOG’s nearby Elgood discovery.
