Iraq - Oil and gas projects (HVO IRQ-10)

We are focusing on supply chain opportunities with major international oil companies in Southern Iraq. Opportunities around the Rumaila and Majnoon oil fields and the Basra Gas project.

Rumaila is a giant (est. 17 billion barrel reserves) oil field located in Southern Iraq approx. 20 km from the Kuwait border. The field makes up around 40% of Iraq oil production and there around 200 wells operating at Rumaila. In Oct 2012 the field was producing around 1.33 million barrels of oil a day and BP and CNPC intend to raise the production to 2.1 million barrels a day within the next 6 years by investing circa $15 billion to develop this field and increase production.

Majnoon is a super-giant (est. 38 billion barrel reserves) oil field located in Southern Iraq approx. 60km from Basra. In Dec 2009 the Iraqi Government award a licence to a Shell / Petronas JV. According to the deal, the JV will increase production to a peak 1.8 million barrels of oil a day by 2017.

Particular areas of interest include operations, projects, sub-surface, well services, environmental & training. Developments on these projects are currently under review as a consequence of the local political situation.

Activities are focussed on further developing the UK supply chain through targeted events such as share fairs and UK Roadshows.
