Eni group installs Zubair treatment plants

The group led by Eni SPA redeveloping supergiant Zubair oil field in southern Iraq has completed three new oil, gas, and water treatment plants (OGJ Online, July 16, 2013).

Together with restructured and modernized facilities, the new plants boost total oil and gas treatment capacity at Zubair to 650,000 b/d.

Four new treatment trains at the Hammar production center have capacities totaling 200,000 b/d. New trains with capacities of 50,000 b/d each are in place at the Zubair and Rafydia production centers.

Hammar and Zubair are on production. Rafydia will start up by the end of this month.

The new plants have water injection capacities totaling about 300,000 b/d.

Zubair produces about 360,000 b/d of oil, twice its level when the technical services contract with South Oil Co. for field redevelopment went into effect in February 2010.

Production is to increase during the next few years to 850,000 b/d, a target renegotiated from the originally agreed 1.2 million b/d.

Eni leads a consortium that includes Korea Gas Corp., Occidental Petroleum Corp., and state partner Missan Oil Co.
