US super major ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) has awarded oilfield services contractor Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) a wellwork integrated services contract for the first phase of the West Qurna oil field in southern Iraq.

The contract is for the refurbishment of the wells at the West Qurna field and includes on-site logistics and technical support for rigless and rig-assisted workover on the wells. Halliburton will also provide a workover rig, coiled tubing, slickline services, logging, production enhancement and well testing to the West Qurna phase one development.

“We believe Halliburton’s strong presence in Iraq, coupled with our technical leadership, was a factor in securing this contract from ExxonMobil Iraq Limited,” said Dave Lesar, Halliburton’s Chairman, President and CEO. “We’re pleased to see our investment and commitment to provide services within Iraq being recognized by companies such as ExxonMobil and its West Qurna (Phase 1) project co-venturers.”
