Steady output from North Azadegan oil field in Iran at 75,000 bpd

Steady output from North Azadegan oil field in Iran at 75,000 bpd

Teheran, November 25 - Neftegaz.RU. Iran’s North Azadegan oil field, which the country shares with Iraq in the West Karoun region, is producing 75,000 barrels per day of oil steadily, director of the field’s development project Esmail Qolampour Ahangar said.

5 new wells and an assessment well are planned to be drilled in the field in order to maintain the field’s recovery factor after the 5th and 6th years of production. 3 years have passed since North Azadegan oil field started production, the official said.

Regarding the plans for increasing the field’s output, Ahangar noted that in addition to drilling the mentioned 6 wells, plans have been made for overhauling the already active wells in order to increase the field’s recovery factor.

He added that for the time being, the developers are using the “Gas Lift" procedure in the wells of North Azadegan field to improve the recovery factor and maintain the production level.

West Karoun oilfields, which Iran shares with Iraq at the western part of Iran’s southwestern region of Karoun, include 5 major fields namely North Azadegan, South Azadegan, North Yaran, South Yaran and Yadavaran.

West Karoun holds great importance for the country’s oil industry since according to the latest studies, its in-situ deposit is estimated to be 67 billion barrels containing both light and heavy crude oils, and therefore it could have a big impact on Iran’s oil output increases in the future.

With the fields fully operational, their output could add 1.2 million bpd to the country’s oil production capacity.
