Three wells, producing a total 24,000 barrels per day, have been commissioned at the Badra field, Iraq, by operator Gazprom Neft. The total number of wells at the Badra field has now reached nine, all of which are in free-flow operation, with total production increasing to 64,000 barrels per day.
Drilling of a further three wells — the BD-2, P-14, and P-10 — has now commenced under a new contract with China’s ZPEC. Drilling of the P-07 well is ongoing, with its commissioning expected in August 2016.
Gazprom Neft continues its construction of oil and gas infrastructure at the Badra field including, in particular, pre-commissioning works for the third production line (“C”) at the central processing facility — something which will shortly allow this facility to reach its planned capacity of 115 barrels per day. Some 75 percent of equipment and facilities for the processing of associated petroleum gas (APG) are now in place.
