Who is operating in South Iraq

On the 3rd of November 2009, BP signed a technical service contract with Iraq’s state-owned South Oil Company which aims to boost production from the super-giant Rumaila field in south Iraq.

BP and the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) are working through a technical service contract (TSC) with Iraq’s state-owned South Oil Company (SOC) to increase production from the Rumaila oilfield, near Basra in south Iraq. The contract was signed in November 2009.

The contract has a 20 year lifetime and will aim to increase plateau production to 2.85 million b/d in the second half of the next decade. www.bp.com

Shell in Iraq currently has one major project already being Implemented – the Majnoon project which involves developing and upgrading the existing oilfield and facilities in the Majnoon sector, they are awaiting finalization of an Agreement with the Iraqi Government for the Iraq South Gas Utilisation Project (ISG). Under this Agreement Shell will form joint venture with the Iraq South Gas Company to rejuvenate, rehabilitate and upgrade the existing gas collection and processing facilities. www.shell.com

CNPC commenced oil negotiation with Iraq since 1997 and signed a service contract on the development of Al-Ahdab Oilfield with the Iraq’s Ministry of Oil in November 2008. CNPC also provides oilfield services in the country.

In November 2008, CNPC signed a Development Service Contract of Al-Ahdab Oilfield with Iraq’s Ministry of Oil.

Located 180 kilometers southeast to Iraq’s capital city of Bagdad, Al-Ahdab Oilfield has a structural area of about 200 square kilometers. CNPC will apply advanced development technologies to meet the benchmarks of 25,000 barrels/day of oil within the first three years and 115,000 barrels/day of oil by the end of the sixth year.

On November 3rd 2009, CNPC, and British Petroleum, signed a technical service contract with Iraq’s State Oil Marketing Organization (SOMO) and South Oil Company (SOC) in Baghdad to expand production on Iraq’s Rumaila Oilfield. www.cnpc.com.cn

Eni was awarded the license for the development of the Zubair giant field in Iraq on the 13th of October 2009, following a successful first round bid. The license was awarded to an Eni-led consortium (with Eni as Operator), consisting of the US Occidental Petroleum Corporation and Korea Gaz Corporation.

The Zubair field, one of the largest Iraqi oil fields, currently produces 195,000 barrels of oil per day. In the next seven years, under the field’s expansion programme, production is expected to reach a plateau level of 1.125 million barrels of oil per day. www.eni.com

Within the framework of Iraq’s second petroleum bidding round organized by the Iraqi Ministry of Oil on December 12th, 2009, the consortium led by PetroChina Company Ltd signed on January 27, 2010 a 20-year Development and Production Service Contract with Missan Oil Company for the development of the Halfaya oil field. Total E&P Iraq holds a 18.75% interest in the consortium, alongside the operator PetroChina (37.5%) and partners Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. (18.75%) and the State Partner South Oil Company (25%). www.total.com

Exxon Mobil and its Iraqi partners reached “a major milestone” for oil production at the West Qurna oil field in southern Iraq, an Iraqi executive said. West Qurna is about 40 miles northwest of Basra near outlets to the Persian Gulf.

Exxon Mobil announced field production at West Qurna-1 rose from 244,000 barrels of oil per day to 285,000 bpd under the terms of a technical services contract. www.exxonmobil.com

In 2009 a Consortium of LUKOIL and the Norwegian company Statoil won a tendering competition for rights to develop the West Qurna-2 field. The field is one of the largest in the world, which are not currently being developed, and is located in the southern Iraq, 65 km north-west of the large port city of Basrah.

Recoverable reserves at the field are close to 13 billion barrels. The main productive horizons are Mishrif, Yamamah, Hasib, Maudud, and Zubair. More than 90% of reserves are concentrated in Mishrif and Yamamah reservoirs. The field was discovered in 1973. Geological exploration (2D seismic and drilling of exploration wells) was carried out by Soviet geologists and service organizations. www.lukoil.com

 

 

 

 

 

Oil and Gas in the Rest of Iraq

 

Iraq has the world’s third largest proven petroleum reserves and has historically been the second largest oil producing country in the world, after Saudi Arabia, with over 115 billion barrels of proven oil reserves. Iraq’s true resource potential may be greater than expected, as deeper oil-bearing formations located mainly in the Western Desert region could yield additional resources, but have not been fully explored. According to the 2008 BP Statistical Energy Survey, Iraq had 2007 proved natural gas reserves of 3.17 trillion cubic metres, 1.78% of the world total. Oil terminals are situated at Mina al Bakr, Khawr al Amayah, and Al Faw and there are oil pipelines linking the coutry with Turkey and Syria.

There are five ”supergiant” fields in Iraq:

  • Majnoon
  • Rumaila
  • West Qurna
  • Zubair
  • Amara

Southern Iraq is where the vast majority of the Iraqi Oil is located. Within the South, the Halfaya, Nahr Umr, Majnoon, West Qurna, Gharaf, Nasiriya, Rafidain (Abu Amoud), Amara, Noor (Nur), Tuba and Ratawi oil fields constitute the fields that are attracting all the attention.

M.Casey from Target Exploration has given us the following insight into Southern Iraq’s Oil fields:

1. The Southern Area:

This area (between Longs. 47.00-48.00 E. and Lats. 30.00-31.30 N.) which includes Ratawi, Tuba, Nahr Umr, West Qurna and Majnoon oil fields is economically the most attractive production / exploration area.

Producing formations (Zubair, Mishrif, Nahr Umr (Burgan), Yamama, Ratawi, Khasib, Ghar, Hartha, Rumaila, Ahmadi, Shu’aiba, and Sulaiy) are at depth range of 1250-4200 m BKB, The five fields have an average cumulative net pay thickness of 220 m/well, and an average maximum production capacity of 8400 BOPD/well.

Production is predominantly assisted by a good water drive in this area. The Southern area has proven but partially explored deep Najmah potential, several shallow unappraised, poorly developed or undeveloped heavy oil reservoirs (such as Ghar and Mishrif) and three un-drilled seismic anomalies.

2. The Western Area:

This area (between Longs. 45.30-46.30 E. and Lats. 31.00-32.00 N.) includes Rafidain (Abu Amoud), Gharaf and Nasiriya oil fields. It is ranked as economically the second most attractive production /exploration area among the three areas under consideration.

Producing formations (Yamama, Mishrif, Zubair and Nahr Umr) are 2000-4000 m deep. The fields have an average cumulative net pay thickness is 160 m/well, and an estimated average maximum production capacity of 6300 STBOPD/well.

The Western area has deep Najmah and shallow stratigraphic Mishrif rudist reef potentials, however no discernable un-drilled seismic structural closure has so far been found.

3. The Eastern Area:

This area (between Longs. 46.30-47.30 E. and Lats. 31.30-32.00 N.) includes Noor (Nur), Halfaya and Amara oil fields.

Proven producing formations (Mishrif, Nahr Umr, Sa’di, Tanuma and Khasib) are between 2800-4400m BKB; the fields have an average cumulative net pay thickness of 73+ m/well, and an estimated average maximum production capacity of 5900 STBOPD/well. The Eastern area has deep Najmah potential, shallow Mishrif reef potential, in addition to one undrilled seismic anomaly.

Kirkuk is the other region, further to the North, at the limit with the Kurdish Autonomous region, where you will find very important reserves exceeding 6.5 billion barrels.
