Eni group lets contract for Zubair water injection installation

A group led by Eni SPA awarded a water-injection installation contract worth about $60 million in the ongoing redevelopment of supergiant Zubair oil field in southern Iraq. Drake & Scull International PJSC announced July 18 that it received an engineering, procurement, and construction contract.

Drake & Scull Oil & Gas also will oversee construction of a natural gas pipeline to a power plant. The EPC water-injection contract calls for installation of flow lines, trunk lines, manifolds, and wellhead hookup work to enhance oil recovery. The work is scheduled to be completed by early 2018.

Zubair produces about 360,000 b/d of oil, twice its level when a technical services contract with South Oil Co. for field redevelopment went into effect in February 2010 (OGJ Online, Mar. 3, 2016).

Production is expected 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.
