READING, UK – BG Group says its production in the first quarter of 2011 was affected by civil unrest.

In Tunisia, the restart of the Hasdrubal plant gathering gas from offshore fields was delayed, and in Egypt, there was significant disruption to normal patterns of gas demand.

Due to these issues, the company expects its development projects in Egypt’s West Delta Deep Marine concession, scheduled for later in 2011, to be delayed by several months.
